Helwig 2012 Petite Sirah
The nose is warm and oaky. The bright strawberries are enticing behind the wood. Such a welcoming tone.
The palate is greeted by more strawberries, leather notes and an air of cedar. What a great start. It jumps on your palate and feels as if it cleans your tongue as if it wants to start fresh. Then it drops a ton of fresh fruit. Clean and delicious. The finish is so classy. Well structured. This is a big wine that comes off as a delicate flower. Tough act to imitate, not to mention follow. So nice but you’ll have to visit Helwig in Plymouth to pick it up. They are almost sold out. It’s that good! • 400 Cases
