Mission Briefing

Codename:

Mammoth Elegance

Today’s Peterson Winery 2010 Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah marks a welcome return for Peterson, hands down one of our favorite wineries. We always get a little giddy when we see one of their wines presented to the tasting panel, and today’s Petite Sirah did not disappoint. Well crafted, approachable, and absolutely delicious, today’s wine is yet another winner for dynamic young winemaker Jamie Peterson.

Don’t let the inky, foreboding color intimidate you - this wine shows an elegant restraint that’s a bit rare for the varietal. Well balanced and smooth, this wine has a lovely interplay of dark fruit and terroir that make it a perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods. Looking for a luxurious, bold red wine for your next dinner? *This** is the one!

We love Peterson, and we believe that after one sip of today’s wine, you will, too. At nearly 30% off, be sure to stock up!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Super inky scarlet through and through, with a subtle magenta at the edge.

Smell:

A heady blend of dark fruit, terroir, and spice, highlighted by notes of sweet plum, blackberry, sweet tobacco leaf, coffee bean, fennel, subtle sage, and black peppercorn.

Taste:

Well balanced and delicious on the palate, with ripe blackberry, raspberry, and black currant laid against fresh pine boughs, berry bramble, sandalwood, flint minerality, toasted oak, rosemary, clove, and a touch of cassis.

Finish:

Smooth and supple, this is a very elegant Petite Sirah, with a fine balance between fruit and earth that makes it very food friendly.

Pairing:

Grilled New York steak, with a rosemary and mushroom reduction drizzled overtop.
