2016 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 allows these big wines to achieve their full potential. Our 2016 “Mr. Big” lives up to its name. Inky, and dark purple in color, it gives way to deep rich aromatics of blueberry, blackberry, chocolate, and spice on the nose. This full-bodied wine tantalizes the palate with flavors of plum, licorice, blackberries, sweet tobacco, and cedar spice with undertones of chocolate. The presence of firm, yet well-rounded tannins plays wonderfully with the French oak and is the structure of this big juicy wine. “Go Big” when pairing and try this bold red paired with roasted pork, chicken mole, drunken steak with sautéed Shiitake mushrooms, or any dish rich in fat! Please decant when opening prior to 2022.
