Line 39 Petite Sirah 2014

Descriptions:

The 39th parallel runs through the heart of California wine country and is home to Line 39 wines. Here we craft dynamic wines expressive of their region of origin and premium vineyard lineage. Line 39 wines are versatile and sophisticated, providing a wonderful complement to a variety of foods.

Highly Recommended / 94 Points – Ultimate Beverage Challenge
“Peppery smoked meat, eucalyptus and cedar wood counterbalance rich, succulent blueberry and fresh vegetation on this tangy, spicy red. Ripe acidity and chewy tannins frame rustic but detailed fruit, transitioning into black raisin and concord grape skin.”

TASTING NOTES

The 2014 Petite Sirah offers aromas of red and black fruits and warm baking spices with a hint of oak. A full bodied wine that is both complex and elegant, this Petite Sirah calls out for a big, juicy steak.
