Enkidu Wine Diener Ranch 2011 Petite Sirah

For the Petite Sirah, 2011 produced a mammoth sized wine with youthful mouth coating tannins which cloak the richness inside. This beautiful red rock vineyard features fruit that creates a wine representative of the surrounding environment: aromas of cedar, brush, licorice and dust complement blueberry and plum, followed by flavors of dusty chocolate, blackberry and cherry kirsch with a hint of herb. The acidity and tannin provide a backbone that goes on and on. This is a wine to lay down for a great reward of complexity and richness.

This wine feels adventurous, it is not for the faint of heart!

It is extremely dry (almost mouth puckering!), but softens wonderfully when paired with strong meat and cheese. We wished we had a gorgeous steak to have with it, but it worked well with a gnocchi & sausage dish.  

Decanted about an hour.
