2013, Sean Thackrey Sirius Petit SirahUdsolgt
About as elegant as Petite Sirah gets, Sean Thackrey Petite Sirah Sirius Eaglepoint Ranch presents a nuanced bouquet of black and blue fruits, eucalyptus, wet gravel, bay leaf, and leafy tobacco.
Fresh and with notable purity to the aromas, the wine is medium to full-bodied on the palate and perfectly balanced, showing a rich, concentrated mid-palate, a light, seamless texture, and the classic Petite Sirah richness and length on the finish. Given the balance, concentration, and variety, I can only image that this will be incredibly long lived. Nevertheless, it's approachable now, yet should benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age.
