2013 Napa Valley Petite Sirah
Petite Sirah •Gobbler Grove Vineyard
California: Napa Valley
When our friends at Clif Family Winery offered us every last bottle of their delicious 2013 Napa Valley Petite Sirah, we sprang at the opportunity.
Our Operatives love Petite Sirah, and they adore the wines of Clif. One taste of today’s elegant, delicious treat will tell you why.
Grab yours soon, though, quantity is limited.
Today’s wine is an inky, dark and elegant wine that shows plenty of character… but also real poise. This is a very balanced Petite that delivers elegance and dark fruit on the palate.
On the nose, the wine is lively and inviting. Fragrant but austere at first, then the wine really opens up to reveal aromas of blackberry jam, cassis, pencil shavings, subtle cigar box, violets, jelly donut, and cinnamon, with hints of oak and black pepper.
Bright and soft on the palate, with flavors that increase in intensity as the wine rests on the palate. Flavors of blackberry, black cherry, cassis, black licorice, spiced blackberry candy, subtle spice and soft oak.
The only thing we could ask for is more.
This limited-availability (and highly recommended) wine will likely sell out - so please make your purchase soon.
Inky dark purple, with a shimmering surface and bright purple edges.
Blackberry jam, cassis, pencil shavings, subtle cigar box, violets, jelly donut, and cinnamon, with hints of oak and black pepper.
Blackberry, black cherry, cassis, black licorice, spiced blackberry candy, subtle spice and soft oak.
Dark fruit flavors cling to the palate for a very long time, while spice and licorice and oak tail off more quickly. In the end, the wines plush tannins leave behind a softly dry and chewy feeling that makes the wine intriguing.
Enjoy this delicious wine with everything from an elegant filet to a piled-high backyard burger.
