Stags' Leap 2011 Petite Sirah

The cooler 2011 vintage yielded an elegant Petite Sirah, scented with the varietal’s signature trio of black fruit, floral and spicy characteristics. Fresh, juicy flavors of blackberry and blueberry are complemented by generous spice notes of clove and pepper with a subtle hint of rose petal.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on December 17, 2015

The Petite refers to the size of the berries and Sirah has nothing to do with the Shiraz/Syrah varietal. This dark inky and rich red is a great alternative to the trustworthy Cabernet Sauvignon. We like the Stags’ Leap because of its full-bodied and savoury flavour profile. The wine is spicy and exotic with black fruit and dark chocolate aromas and the flavours play across the palate. It is complex and tasty and balances perfectly with smoky, grilled meats.

Highly recommend.
