Mission Briefing

Codename:

Que Shiraz, (Petite) Sirah?

Some wines just have that special “wow factor” that leaves no pleasure point ignored when it comes to the taster’s palate. A tooth-staining, intense blend of Shiraz and Petite Sirah made by one of Australia’s most celebrated winemakers, Ben Glaetzer’s Imprimata Proprietary Red is guaranteed to please any and all with its show-stopping intensity and depth of flavor. This wine has seen its share of acclaim with 92 points from Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, 91 points from the Wine Spectator Insider and 91+ points from Robert Parker. This is a fabulous wine with a $50+ taste.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Purple ink. Opaque.

Smell:

Chocolate covered blueberries! Black fruits, potpourri, cocoa dust.

Taste:

A dense, black fruit attack coats the palate with plush fruit taste and baking spices. Hard not to like this one, immensely! Attractive, fleshy, rich, hedonistic taste profile that toes the line between balance and brawn. It does so perfectly. Love it.

Finish:

Smooth, supple, and polished. The Petite Sirah provides solid tannins that will allow this to age easily 6-8 years.

Pairing:

Braised meats. BBQ. A perfect cheeseburger!
