Spenker 2010 Petite Sirah
Slightly inky. Almost looks chewy. A subtle nose but I found black berries and raspberries. I have to admit, I had to fight to find them. Elusive. She’s a bit shy, especially for a PS. Tart, round tannins rule the palate but in an underwhelming sort of way. At 14+% this is not a little wine but carries like something lighter than it is. Think of it as a big red for the more delicate palate. The finish is about as even and balanced as you could imagine. Smooth and mellow. Not my style of Petite Sirah but I definitely enjoyed that.
