Mission Briefing

Codename:

Petite Eruption

Clay Shannon is a highly regarded grape grower, sheep grazing farmer, all organic pioneer with 1000+ acres in Lake County’s High Valley AVA. His Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah take on $75 Napa Valley wines. The 2011 High Valley Petite Sirah has that profile down, but with a Euro-tuned muscle and spice that makes it soar beyond the Napa Valley. At $30, this is a great wine. Today for only $14.99 it’s a ridiculous deal!

Deep red.

Currant, cherry, cassis and a hint of black licorice.

Taste:

Blackberry, currant, and cherry. Yum!

Finish:

Very complex, with lasting tannin and rustic charm.

Pairing:

A wine as intense as this requires a steak.
