Rosenblum Petite Sirah Pickett Road 2006
from Napa Valley, California
A blend of 98% Petite Syrah and 2% Carignane.
This Petite Sirah is bold, yet elegant. Bringing Carignane into the blend adds a broad and soft dimension to the finished wine, along with a hint of rose petal in the bouquet. Overall, the wine exhibits floral notes along with rich fruit components of blackberry and currant, as well as cracked pepper and earthy spice. The flavors are of dense berries with hints of vanilla and exotic spices.
Serve this wine with Beef Wellington, marinated lamb chops, or a morel mushroom sauce pasta.
"The 2006 Pickett Road is a wine of unbridled richness, huge tannins, massive fruit, earth, purity, and loads of blackberry, blueberry, incense, and graphite characteristics, a full-bodied, monster Petite Sirahs. Save for 6-8 years, and drink over the following two decades or more."

Wonderful Petite Sirah. Rich, bold and flavorful. Nice value. In my book, compares nicely to Napa Cabs that cost 50% more. For those of you who think Napa Cabs are at apex preditor of the North Coast, I challenge you to try a high quality PS.
