Rosenblum Heritage Clones Petite Sirah ’06

Rosenblum Heritage Clones Petite Sirah 2006Fans of Kent Rosenblum’s style of winemaking should be deliriously happy with the 2006 Heritage Clones Petite Sirah.

The first clue to this wine’s personality is its deep purple color, so dense that light doesn’t penetrate it. After a brief decant, aromas of dark berries and briar dominate the spicy nose. There’s mulberry, plum, blackberry, chocolate and just a touch of anise on the palate, supported by enough tannic structure to keep it from being just a flabby fruit bomb. It’s rich and full-bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel and a long, pleasantly dry finish – delicious, wonderful stuff!
