Varozza 2008 Petite Sirah (St. Helena)

This is a strongly flavored, brawny, tannic and heady wine. In other words, it's classic Petite Sirah. The variety does particularly well in St. Helena, whose heat brings extra ripeness, but whose cool nights preserve acidity. Varozza's '08 has delicious flavors of black currant, plum, bacon and black pepper; it should last at least a decade.
