The New Face of Petite Sirah

Ripe and fresh, giant nose and not especially fruit-forward.  Just balanced and nice.  Would never guess 2011.  What has happened to PS’s which needed decades to approach?  This is the most un-PS I have ever tasted, but I like them big and brawny.  That is not to say this is light.  Quite the contrary, just ALREADY a very easy-to-drink wine.  User-friendly.  Perhaps the new direction of PS.  Taken on it’s own, a decent, solid wine.  Taken in the light of how I classically feel PS’s should be presented at this age, I am not blown away.   ♦
