2006 Petite Sirah La Presa Vineyard

« Back to Consilience

Johnny Cash had a hit song called “Boy Named Sue” about an unfortunately named son and how he had to fight for respect because of his girly moniker. Much like Sue, Petite Sirah could really use a better name; after all there is nothing “petite” about it and it is not Syrah. All naming issues aside, there is no doubt about it; our La Presa Petite Sirah is one BIG, full-bodied, inky, chewy red. From the first sip, flavors of dried cranberry, black plum, cracked pepper, cinnamon, allspice, cardamom, star anise and cloves explode across your palate. With a finish of bittersweet chocolate and black cherry, this wine does not go quietly; it has staying power and invites you back for more. Try some paired with beef tenderloin and rosemary, spice rubbed leg of lamb, pork in molé sauce or a dark chocolate soufflé.
