2013 Rockpile Petite Sirah
What a “Wow Factor!” From the first taste through the strong finish, our Rockpile Road Petite Sirah exudes richness. Nearly opaque, the inky, black-purple hue is the first clue to the immensity of this wine. A bramble of dark fruit, forest floor, leather and peppery spice open the nose. The palate is doused with blueberry, blackberry and pomegranate fruit flavors, backed by a solid oak influence that leaves hints of cedar and cloves. Muscular tannins hold the finish, suggesting a long life and age worthiness. This is not a wine for the faint of heart; pair it with equally expressive food, such as rich, meaty flavors accompanied with complex sauces.
