Natalie's Score: 92/100

California's best Petit Sirah, without question. Fleshy ripe blackberries wrapped in smoke and dark spice with voluptuous layers on the palate. Full-bodied and endlessly long on the finish. Here's a rare chance to try a lesser-known varietal on its own that's usually used in blending. The winery has planted 240 acres of vins on its estate. Pair with grilled meats.

Petite Sirah food pairings: venison, barbecued steak, pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A dark coloured wine with purple hues. Aromas of blackberry, cedar, red licorice, fresh tobacco and a touch of underwood. Dark berries follow through on the palate. A full bodied wine with structured tannins that are well incorporated with fresh acidity.

Would pair nicely with barbecued steak or with venison, moose, or other types of game meat.

Tasted October 2017.
Stags' Leap (2014) Petite Sirah is dark purple in the glass with dark ripe berries, smoke and spice on the palate. This Californian Petite Sirah is actually 78% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah, 8% Grenache and 1% each Viognier, Carignan wine grapes. The original Stags' Leap Winery was established in 1893. Drink now and for the next 15 years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
