Natalie's Score: 93/100

Robust, smoky and spicy, this Petit Sirah-driven red blend with some Syrah and Grenache is fleshy and full-bodied with concentrated f blackberry, blueberry, licorice and a smattering of cracked black pepper flavours on the palate. Love, love the smoky finish. Tannins are fine. Pair with full-bodied meaty game dishes. Enjoy now and for the next 10 years.

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

Reviews and Ratings

From Napa Valley wine region, Stags' Leap Winery 2017 Petite Sirah is rich and dark purple in the glass, dry, full-bodied and powerful with a rich concentration of blackberry, blueberry and nut and spicy flavours on the palate. Drink or hold. Pour with a bison burgers, venison stew and grilled game sausages. - 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.
