Fact – Petite Sirah is not a baby Syrah grape It is an entirely different wine grape! Hence, the reason Syrah and Petite Sirah do not taste alike. I like my Petite Sirah rustic and rich in flavor, so I was a bit disappointed with this one. A bit of berries and mocha on the nose, but I thought the bouquet was subdued. The mouthfeel was rather thin, but there was some nice fruit there. The finish was smooth, with some blackberry lingering.
