Big Petites

petitesirahThis Tuesday Tasting (Oct 29) we try 3 California Petite Sirah blends that showcase how this small grape produces such a big flavour. Featuring:

  • Rockwall Obsideana – From the winemakers of Rosenblum comes a beautiful blend of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel tasting of  blueberry, cherry, dark chocolate, sassafras and a hint of smoke and graphite on the finish. $19 btl, $8 btg
  • Michael David Petite Petit —A combination of two powerful grapes—Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot—this inky red is full of dark fruits like blackberry and mulberry, balanced by orange zest to create a dense mouthful with a surprisingly dry finish. $17 btl, $8 btg
  • The Pessimist – This highly ranked blend from Daou vineyards will leave you optimistic! Petite Sirah, Syrah, Zin and Tannat combine into a dark, plush blend tasting of blueberry, boysenberry and black plum richened with notes of truffle, leather and smoke for a long, elegant mouthful. $22 btl, $9 btg
