Sun Down Petite Sirah
Our first Petite Sirah is a beautiful deep maroon, almost purple color, as is typical for this deeply pigmented varietal. You'll find it has dark fruit and lavender aromas followed by flavors of blackberry, currant, plum, cracked black pepper and dark chocolate. Not monstrously tannic like Petite Sirah can be, it has a medium-bold body with highly textured tannins and a lingering mid palate, all nicely wrapped in a round, silky profile.
Petite Sirah is known to pair beautifully with highly flavorful or rich dishes like Chicken Molé, Lamb Tagine, steak, ribs, and grilled sausages. Rich vegetarian dishes containing mushrooms, eggplant, or black beans are usually good choices.
