Bianchi Signature Selection 2006 Petite Sirah, Plummer Vineyard
Paso Robles, California

This Paso Robles offering is a deep, dark Petite Sirah with earthy-coffee and blackberry jam characteristics. Bold and big, the wine is made using a high portion of aggressive American oak barrels for aromas along with some French oak coopered especially for Petite Sirah and Syrah. The 2008 blend includes about five percent of Bianchi's Estate Syrah, adding even more tannic backbone. Try this in-your-face red with some perfectly grilled tri-tip.

Rating: 13.5/20
Price: $22
