Clarksburg Wine Company 2010 Petite Sirah
Clarksburg, California

Makers of Petite Sirah often feel like they have to apologize for what the grape is not (e.g., it is not like Syrah). Petite Sirah produces big, full-bodied red wines that are best consumed with food, such as steaks and other grilled meats. The 2010 Petite Sirah from Clarksburg in California's Central Valley wine region is blended with a small amount of Petit Verdot for balance and aged for 18 months. A thick, inky wine, it boasts blackberry and boysenberry flavors with a touch of smokiness on the finish.
