Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
"Petite Sirah lovers are in for a treat! The 2001 Sirius (100% Petite Sirah from Mendocino County’s Eaglepoint Ranch) is a wine of legendary proportions. Huge, uplifted aromatics of graphite, blackberries, blueberries, acacia flowers, and crushed rocks are followed by a wine of classic proportions. A well-delineated, brilliantly concentrated, super-pure offering, it reveals floral notes intermixed with copious amounts of black fruits, this terrific, incredibly young red requires 2-4 years of cellaring. Watch it unfold over the next two decades."
