Mission Briefing

Codename:

Meeker shall inherit the Earth

We’ve been friends with Meeker Winery for the last seven years. In that time, we’ve gotten to know them and their wonderful wines. Unfortunately for us, their popular wines are so hotly sought-after that they haven’t had any for us to showcase for you. Today Agent Red got lucky, and we are very proud to bring you a doozy of a Meeker wine.

2007 Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah is a delightfully flavorful and food-friendly wine that will pair with almost anything you can think of. This wine won’t take the enamel off your teeth like some monster Petites are wont to do. This wine has plenty of flavor and plenty of character, but it is a bright and balanced food wine through and through.

Don’t forget, we recommend that you buy and enjoy any 2007 we showcase for you. The 2007 vintage won a decade-high 96 point score for northern California reds from Robert Parker.

Decant this ready to drink gem for best results. Stock up for even better results.

Tasting Profile

Look:

An incredibly vivid wine with a deep plum core. Viewed from the top of the wine, this dark color carries through to the meniscus. When swirled or viewed from the side, the wine shows a pretty crimson edge.

Smell:

With a wonderful blend of fruit and earth, this wine leads with big, bright notes of sweet blackberry jam, cassis and dried blueberry draped over aged oak, sweet tobacco and dried cranberry with a subtle hint of cinnamon herbal tea.

Taste:

Bright and fresh at the front of the palate, leading to a mid-palate lushness that teems with sweet blackberry compote, braised plum, young blackberry and freshly brewed hibiscus black tea.

Finish:

An elegant, drying and long-lingering finish, with honeyed dark fruit seamlessly transitioning into a pleasant, bright tartness.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a rosemary and garlic rubbed grilled chicken and freshly roasted asparagus.
