Petite Sirah, York Creek Vineyard 2011

Elyse Winery

The 2011 York Creek Petite Sirah is jet black in color with intriguing aromas and flavors of juicy wild berries and plums, and hints of bay leaf, vanilla, and bacon fat. It is richly textured and full bodied on the palate with powerful fruit flavors that are balanced by firm, ripe tannins that lead to a long lasting finish. This wine is definitely age worthy and will benefit from decanting in the short term. Pair with strong cheeses, wild game, lamb shank or a nicely peppered strip steak.
