The Shell Creek 2012 Reserve Petite Sirah is from the 125-acre home vineyard. This Rhône Valley varietal is 100% Petite Sirah. Its color is remarkable, very dark purple with beautiful edges of gradient pink. The nose shows subtle plum and notes of vanilla and is followed on the palate by the traditional Petite Sirah display of blackberries along with an elongated and smooth tannin accompaniment. The wine was aged in Hungarian oak for a period of 20 months and pairs quite nicely with a wide variety of dishes, from pork and lamb to savory pasta dishes. Excellent with chocolate desserts.
