2006 Petite Sirah
CA - Mendocino County - Redwood Valley
$16.00View other wines from this winery.
The third in a series of smooth and rich, inky and intense, black purple Petite Sirahs from Volante. Spicy aromas of black fruit segue to a polished palate with loads of blackberry and huckleberry flavor. A pleasant finish meshes spice and bramble with oak complexities and an earthy mineral edge. The tannins are well defined but not tannic.
