Tasting Notes

Our York Creek Petite Sirah is deep crimson red in color with intriguing aromas and flavors of blackberry, cardamom, plum, pomegranate, and hints of licorice, violet and espresso. It is dense and immense on the palate with powerful fruit flavors that are balanced by refreshingly bright acidity along with firm, ripe tannins and amazing length on the finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with strong cheeses, wild game, lamb shank or a nicely peppered strip steak.
