2016 Petite Sirah
Petite Sirah….its name belies its true character. There is nothing “petite” about this wine! The 2016 Mount Palomar Petite Sirah is dark, bold and brimming with aromas of blackberry, elderberry, blueberry and plum. The color is classic Petite Sirah, black and nearly opaque in the middle and fading to an intense fuschia-like hue at the rim. The tannins are firm and high, announcing themselves quickly after your first sip. The finish is long and stays centered on the dark fruits with hints of vanilla. Due to the high tannin levels, This wine will cellar well for the next 5-7 years. We recommend pairing this wine with our juicy Mount Palomar burger. Enjoy!
