Spicy with black pepper and luscious ripe blackberry aromas. Smooth and full-bodied with incredible layers of flavour. You simply can't beat this price. Stock up for your parties for the next year or two. Pair with hearty meat dishes.

Petite Sirah food pairings: sloppy beef-cheeks tacos, slow-cooked beef.

Travis Oke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

2 things interest me here ... Mexican wine + Petite Sirah (3 things if you include the price and 4 if you include the fact that it was recommended by my vintages guy).
Complex for an inexpensive wine - the brightness of the fruit his you at the back of the tongue and lingers. I was impressed and will purchase again!
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

A great example of some bottled Mexican sunshine. Ripe and full on the palate with lots of juicy, dark berry fruit, some minerality, and a little spice on the nose. All together, with the dried fruit and lavender on the long finish, make this a good deal of a wine.
With its fruity nose of berries and oak, it could pass as a Zinfandel. But it’s better balanced than most Zins, with spicy notes that flatter slow-cooked beef and a firm acidity to cut through the fat. Source: thegridto.com, Aug. 8, 2012

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
