2004 Old Growth Cellars Petit Sirah (AKA Durif)

So the first bottle of wine we had at the great Roy’s Club (See post below).

Petit Sirah, which was on the menu as just a normal syrah, is also known as Durif. I think this sounds better as the Petit makes it sound…petite….

Well this actually was a nice experience being my first taste of Petit Sirah, which I really enjoyed.

So enough with the pleasantries.

Nose: Blackberry, Current, herbal notes

First Taste: Very drying and fruity, pretty one dimensional but I really liked it. Seemed like a lot of black pepper, but I may be wrong on that. I just remember it being hot but not alcohol hot.

Score:88/100

For a wine out of Humboldt County I have to say they did a pretty good job. For the price $32, I would have to say pass though. However, if you have an expense account…give it a try!

(No picture as I can’t find a website for them…sorry)
