Stags' Leap Winery 2018 Petite Sirah is a smoky and spicy Napa Valley red wine with a splash of Syrah and Grenache added to the mix. Dark purple in the glass, this full-bodied red is dry and intense with blackberry, blueberry, meaty, cocoa, dried wild herbs and spicy flavours on the palate. Drink or hold. Pour with a game tourtiere.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Stags' Leap Winery 2018 Petite Sirah is a smoky, meaty and full-bodied Napa Valley red with a splash of Syrah and Grenache. Rich and layered with ripe dark plum, dark berry, smoked meat and baking spice flavours dense and savoury on the palate. Tannins are chewy. Give it a little more time and try it in 2023 with a well-marbled steak done rare from the grill. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
