2016 ReZerve Petite Sirah
Dark bluish purple, almost opaque in appearance, this deep rich full bodied offering holds almost nothing back! Definitely not for the meek or faint of heart! The nose has a spicy licorice, cassis like quality with toasty oak overtones. Mid palate flavors are dominated by ripe black fruit, currants and fresh blueberries with intriguing hints of minerality and smooth vanilla like textures. Bold and powerful yet balanced and well integrated, the finish is long warm and surprisingly elegant. This lush hedonistic nectar is a near perfect complement to the classic Peking Duck or virtually any other roasted duck preparation, as well as most charcuterie and wild game.
