2013 Petite Sirah “Lovett Vineyard”, Red Hills
Deeply saturated and inky in the glass – ruby-purple with violet glints. The aromas set the stage for this wine – quintessential Petite Sirah notes of blackberry jam, rhubarb pie, baking spices, and blueberries are buoyed by a set of savory aromatics of cigar box, wet gravel, espresso, and fine oak. The palate mirrors the nose – rich, ripe berry and cherry notes with underpinnings of dark chocolate, coffee, and a hint of hoppy porter.
Generous fine-grained tannins provide a backbone to the long, lingering finish of cassis and bittersweet chocolate. With this bottling, the richness and ripeness of fruit are perfectly matched by bright, youthful acidity, giving the wine freshness and balance in this early stage and promising the potential for longer-term cellaring over the next 5-7 years. As the wine matures, the jammy notes will transform into plush, darker fruit while the tannins soften and become velvety on the palate, slowly transforming into a highly nuanced and elegant wine.
