Our Mariana Vineyard 2014 Petite Sirah was grown near the Sierra Foothills of California. This Petite Sirah is very mature and brings a lot of color and density in the glass. There is a striking smoky character in the nose. This wine is earthy, almost meaty, with some dark cherry and blackberry aromas. This is a mature wine which displays some leather and cigar box characters in the finish. The smoky notes are also present in the mouth. The wine is very lush with ample tannins. This is a bright wine built for longevity.
The balance of this wine, provided by the acidity, will pair well with a wide range of dishes like grilled Teriyaki chicken, pork chops, Veal Parmesan or meatloaf. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Veal Scaloppine with Lemon, Capers & Leeks.
