Mission Codename The Mouth Pleaser
Today’s William Gordon Winery 2010 Alexander Valley Petite Sirah posed a bit of a challenge for us at first glance. After tasting a great many highly rated wines, that 99 Point score set some pretty lofty expectations. Could this Petite Sirah possibly live up to the hype? To put it simply: this was one of the most delicious wines we’ve tasted in quite some time.
Today’s wine marks a return for William Gordon Winery. We featured their 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon last month, and our Operatives just couldn’t get enough. We have a feeling that after tasting today’s Petite Sirah, this might be the wine everyone lusts over. Dripping with layer upon layer of lush, complex flavors, this is a wine to savor.
Combine this amazing wine with a budget friendly price, and you’ve got an absolute winner. If you’re anything like us, this is a wine to stock up on!
