Stag's Leap Winery 2007 Petite Sirah - 90pts

Stag's Leap Winery 2007 Petite Sirah (Napa Valley) California

Availability: BCLDB Signature Stores
Cost: $38-50
Alcohol: 14.3%
Date Tasted: December 31st, 2011

Tasting Notes: Dense, smoky and spicy with abundant dark-fruit on the concentrated nose and palate. A blend of Petite Sirah (86%), Syrah (8%), Grenache (4%) and Viognier (2%) this powerful wine pays homage to its hot and sunny Napa Valley origins and intrigues with layers of pepper and cigar box complexity. An ideal BBQ wine, but at this price one would be better off showcasing it alone to savour the intricacies and hedonistic qualities of the unique flavour profile. Drink now-2015.
