Miner Petite Sirah 2004
This is the sort of wine that tends to funnel all its complexity into exclamations of “yummy” and “mmm”. Here we have a classic dark inky Petite Sirah. Very ripe fruit, but not over the top. In fact, this big wine is balanced very nicely with a healthy dose of tannins. A chocolatey and rich blue and black berried effort, this is what PS should taste like. And, it’s perfect with a burger. One of the last bottles left from my Napa trip last year. And, by the way, Miner is a great little winery to visit with friendly and honest staff and a nice range of well made wines to sample.
