PETITE SIRAH 2013 Paso Robles
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer VINA ROBLES
One of only 5 BEST BUY RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS - Extremely deep intense purple colour. Complex, mocha-chocolate-tinged, slightly spicy, baked plum-cherry puree nose with some cedary sandalwood notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, slightly spicy, mocha-chocolate-tinged, ripe black cherry-plum puree flavours with a lingering, high acid, gently cedary finish. At last, an award-winning Petite Sirah from Paso Robles. It has 14.9% alcohol (actually 15.1% according to their website) and 3 g/L residual sugar. So what makes this so good? Pure classic intense ripe Pasa Robles fruit along with great elevated 6.7 g/L total acidity. TONY ASPLER / 90-points / BEST BUY - Cedary, spicy, blackberry nose; full-bodied, dry, well-extracted black fruit flavours with lively, balancing acidity. Donít miss this terrific value! CSPC 538694
