A “classic” Petite Sirah with pronounced aromatics of cassis and dark plum and savory elements, including licorice, balsamic, vanilla, caramel, espresso, and dried herbs/tarragon, damp earth, tar, and leather. On the palate, it is dry, full-bodied, with medium+ tannins and medium+ acidity. The finish is long, with lingering dried fruit, vanilla, licorice, and leather notes and mouthwatering acidity.
