Hawley 2005 Ponzo Vineyard Petite Sirah (Sonoma County)

This tannic wine is quintessential North Coast Petite Sirah. The vineyard is where Russian River Valley meets Dry Creek Valley, and the wine is bone dry and astringent. The superextracted cherry and blackberry flavors veer on liqueur, but happily avoid raisins, while cool Sonoma gives the wine an acidic brace. If you like these lusty young reds, you'll happily gulp it down with greasy barbecue and roasts.
