"Wine doesn't get much deeper in color or more concentrated in fruit flavor than this. The black color goes to smoky red on the rim, while the aroma is rife with blackberry, licorice, sweet oak and black pepper. The palate boasts plump blackberry, soft blueberry and dark chocolate flavors. Fans of bold, full-bodied and saturated reds are going to love this. Best through 2030."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Tasting Notes: The Mettler 2016 Petite Sirah exudes elegance and grace. True to its varietal heritage, the color is opaque and deep purple. Soft aromas of dark berries, plum and oak are sultry and inviting. As it unfolds on the palate, it delivers a beautiful swirl of concentrated berry flavors with notes of dark honey, plum, violet and baking spices. Well-integrated tannins create a bold backdrop for the beautifully lush texture, and carry the flavors through the lingering finish.
