Blue Fin Petite Sirah

Making a pizza with pancetta tonight and thought this would be perfect – one of Trader Joe’s major house brands. I tried their Viognier about a week ago.

Blue Fin Petite Sirah (2012) California – $5

Photo0325Color: the classic purple-black tone of Petite Sirah, practically opaque at the center.

Aroma: blackberry, tar, and some Asian spice notes.

Taste: a good, chewy Petite Sirah, with stewed and fresh fruit (including plum, berry, and cherry), ginger, black pepper, and a moderately tannic finish.

Quite nice. Not the best Petite Sirah by a long chalk, but an excellent introduction to the variety, and a good party wine. Recommended.
