Natalie's Score: 86/100

L.A. Cetto Petit Sirah 2016 is a robust red from the Baja California, and the largest Mexico winery established in 1975. The Petit Sirah (Durif) is a cross between Syrah and Peloursin. Durif gives the wine a deep, often opaque, ruby bordering on purple colour. Ripe dark fruit and savoury flavours wrapped up in smoke and leather. Great value and a perfect pairing to hamburgers.

Petite Sirah food pairings: lamb cutlets, hamburgers, espresso and cocoa-rubbed flank steak, black bean soup, cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100
Peter Neilson rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

An, initially, very nice petite syrah, with dark fruit, smooth tannins, and a touch of oak, that gives way to a long, very bitter finish that ruins the initial impression. Too bad. Winemaker error? Drops my score from 88 to 85. Even at $13, wouldn’t buy it again, unless they can get rid of the bitter finish.
L.A. Cetto Petit Sirah 2016 is a robust red with a great price point. The Baja California winery was established in Mexico in 1975. The Petit Sirah (Durif) is a cross between Syrah and Peloursin. Durif gives the wine a deep, often opaque, ruby bordering on purple colour. Ripe dark fruit flavours wrapped up in smoke and leather. Enjoy with meat pizzas topped with grilled steak. - Community Wine Reviews
