2014 Mr. Big Petite Sirah
There is nothing “Petite” about Petite Sirah from the Horse Heaven Hills and Washington State, where the warm days and cool nights allow for extended hanging time in the vineyard and lets these big wines achieve their full potential. Our 2014 “Mr. Big” keeps with this tradition and lives up to its name with bold aromas of black berries, rose pedals, and cedar box filling the fragrant bouquet. The mid-palate is a giant with bold flavors of dark cherry, tobacco and dried spices opening up to vanilla, cedar, and splashes of anise. The robust tannins are well structured and balanced and work wonderfully with the French oak adds vanilla nuances and frames this big juicy wine. Please decant when drinking prior to 2019 and even then, feel free to give it a little air time and allow this fun wine to open up the full array of vivid flavors. “Go Big” when pairing and try something new and exciting like wild game, red meat or even spicy foods.
