Silver Medal - Houston Rodeo Wine Competition
We have a blockbuster here, ladies and gentlemen. This Petite Sirah is grown next door ti the winery on Bradford Mountain. The vineyard produces exquisite Petite Sirah fruit every vintage. The warm climate and long, dry growing season allow us to achieve optimal ripeness and produce a soft, fruit-driven wine with concentrated flavor and color. When looking for a big, inky wine that hugs your senses and lasts forever with one sip, look no further! This Petite Sirah showcases aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and violets. Juicy pomegranate, raspberry and black cherry flavors are followed by cushy tannins and a lusciously long finish. Pair this big, cuddly teddy bear with your favorite braised meats or simply enjoy alongside candlelight and a good conversation.
This well-made wine tastes of berry crumble, lifted by a persistent freshness of acidity that's welcomed and welcoming. Dusty tannin adds to elements of black pepper, leather and cigar, finding a balance between fruit and undeniable power. 93 points. - Wine Enthusiast
