2016 Stags' Leap Winery Petite Sirah Napa Valley USA

$34.99 USD $45.99 USD

The 2016 Petite Sirah is made up of 79% Petite Sirah, 8% mixed Rhône varieties, 7% Grenache and 6% Syrah, aged for 12 months in 25% new American oak. Very deep purple-black in color, it opens with notes of freshly crushed black cherries and black berries with touches of plum preserves, baking spices and tar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, very firm and grainy with a lively line to lift the peppery black fruit to a long finish.

Love the aromas of clay, terracotta, blackberries and black licorice. Full-bodied yet compact and linear. Very fine tannins. Fantastic, cool and tight finish.
