My Thoughts on Petite Sirah

img_9471Better as a standalone wine than a blending agent.  There’s nothing that mirrors it, in terms of personality and texture, reverb and its played chords.  The conversation of PS is hardy, dark, forceful.  But, there’s a certain romance to its flavorous rhythms and feel.  Its own music, smile, conversation and portrait.  Why just blend that away?  Why not let the beauty stand on its own?  Each time I sip a Petite, that’s well done of course, I’m reminded why wine is meant to be in my frame, why I’m meant to converse with it and why wine’s expansive echo will always find me.
