Very little Petite Sirah is planted in Washington, and this may well be the first 100% varietal bottling ever made. It's a big, brawny wine as you would expect, done in a take-no-prisoners style. Inky and dense, with concentrated black cherry and blackberry flavors, along with some black pepper and bark.
