Rutherglen Estates Petit Sirah 2007 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 88/100A robust, big bruiser of a wine with aromas of black fruit and smoke. Supple on the palate with more robust flavours coming through. Cries out for a juicy steak!
Petit Sirah food pairings: steaks, game, venison, savoury meat dishes, casseroles.
