Mmmmm, now this one, with it’s bold cherry flavors, hot vanilla finish, and velvety smoothness, has made me a fan! This is what I expect from a full bodied wine. The flavor was great to enjoy alone or with food, and I just can’t get enough of that texture! I believe it comes from very well balanced tannins.
Petite Syrah is not like a “smaller” version of Syrah or Shiraz, but it’s actually a hybrid of Syrah and another grape, Peloursin, which is nearly extinct (source).
It’s nearly opaque, and quite dry, but that fruitiness gave up a mouthful! I’ve already ordered 6 more #noshame #sorrynotsorry
