If you have never tried Petite Sirah, you’re in for a real treat. No, not Syrah, nor is it Petite Syrah. Petite Sirah is a different grape variety all together. And the Blue Oak 1998 Petite Sirah is among the best we’ve encountered. Color of deep reddish-purple; intense aromas of blackberry, raspberry with spicy, peppery notes. Rich, full-bodied flavors of cinnamon spice and blackberry combine in a startling flavor-fest, moving to a lingering finish that is rich and powerful. A moderate tannin finish reminds you this is a wine with solid structure but showing plenty of finesse. Marinated barbecued meats, especially beef or pork, pair very well with Petite Sirah.
