Stags’ Leap Vineyards Petite Sirah

Stags’ Leap Winery’s Petite Syrah comes from a 1920s-era field blend, which also includes small amounts of other Rhône varietals including syrah (8%), grenache (4%) and viognier (2%). The resulting wine is a rich purple color with a decadent nose full of blueberry and blackberry fruit and hints of cocoa. In the mouth, the wine is vibrant and expressive, continuing to display black fruits and chocolate with additional notes of espresso and spice. Structured, but balanced, this is an intense wine that will really start to show its stuff with a little bottle age.
