San Simeon Petite Sirah 2009
This petite sirah reveals deep, inky purple color. Aromas of blackberry, ripe plum, and pepper greet the nose. Barrel aging in French and American oak contributes notes of vanilla and spice. The mouthfeel is jammy and full bodied. Firm tannins provide structure as the flavors build to a lengthy finish.
