Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine has aromas of black cherry, plum and black pepper, with hints of leather and oak spice. The lush flavors on the palate are of black fruits, smoke and chocolate, complemented by supple tannins. This is the perfect full-bodied wine for summer barbecues, blue cheeses, and blackened anything.

Critical Acclaim

"This is classic Parducci Petite Sirah, a near-perfect example of the variety. Dry and robust, yet smooth, it has complex flavors of wild blackberries, blueberries, molasses, dark chocolate, bacon and peppery spices. With beautiful balance, its a great value."

I enjoyed this. It's a deep ruby in the glass, with aromas of berries and spice. A fairly strong body, with a warm peppery finish and nice tannic dryness. The only thing I miss a little is the blackberry and cherry is a bit weaker tasting than I would have expected, but overall it was robust dry red without any real deficits. I'd call it an 88-89.

Nice bouquet but body a bit watery and plain. Peppery finish. Decent for the price.

Just not that good - would rather have Earthquake - weak nose - not flavorful - maybe needs more time
