Vintage tasted 2007 Grapes Petite Sirah
Website www.boglewinery.com

Overview Misleading name aside, Petite Sirah is not a milder version of Syrah; in fact, they are two distinct grapes, and Petite Sirah is much bolder, more tannic, fruitier, and all-around bigger than its namesake. Bogle’s version follows this pattern: big, juicy, and tannic, it’s a perfect companion for a steak on a cold winter evening.

Nose Red berries dominate here, though our blind tasters differed on whether they were over the top. There’s also a nice smoke note.

Mouth There’s a strong blackberry flavor, as well as herbs. It’s not as tannic as some Petite Sirahs (the tannins are still noticeable), and there’s some nice acid thrown into the mix as well.
