2010 Macauley Vineyards Petite Sirah, Napa Valley, Ca, $45 (S) – Rating 93

A yummy rich and deep style of Petite Sirah with an enticing nose of black cherry, ripe raspberry and spicy cigar box. Concentrated yet balanced tannins with nice acidity. Flavors abound of black cherry, plum, jammy black fruit and spice. Notes of cinnamon and espresso on the long finish. Buy This Wine

2009 V. Sattui Winery Petite Sirah, Napa Valley, CA, $35 (S) – Rating 92

Petite Sirah, in my opinion, never seems to get its due. This wine is a great example of Napa Valley Petite Sirah. A rich nose of blackberry pie with notes of smoke and leather. Jammy spicy flavors of cherry, blackberry and ripe plum along with hints of black pepper, smoke and minerality. The tannins are softer than many Petite Sirahs making it all the more approachable. Only 150 cases…Get it while you can. Buy This Wine

2008 Bogle Vineyards Phantom A Proprietary Red Wine, CA, $16 – Rating 89

A blend of predominately Petite Sirah and Old Vine Zinfandel with a touch of Old Vine Mourvedre, this is a yummy go-to nicely priced big red. Plenty of rich and jammy red fruit flavors, cherry, blackberry, raspberry, tobacco leaf, leather, dark spice and black pepper, married with supple tannins. Think cold night by the fireplace…could be the perfect wine.
