2015 Daytripper California Petite Sirah

A bold, extracted and dense wine, with ripe, black-blue fruits at the core interwoven with savory notes of smoked meat. While masculine in style, this wine features a wonderful tension that exists between ripeness, natural acidity and the grapes' inherent tannin structure. The end result is a wine that's powerful, yet balanced. Grilled red meats will make an effective pairing.
