Tasting Notes:

There is nothing petite about this Petite Sirah. Visualize rocky steep slopes very similar to the famous Rhone region of Crozes-Hermitage, for this Lake County gem. Inky with a deep, reddish-purple hue, the concentration is evident as the legs leisurely creep down the sides of the glass. With a quick smell, one can imagine standing in a cellar surrounded by wine barrels. The enticing aromas of sweet fruit and tobacco carry through to voluptuous flavors of blackberry, black cherry, anise, eucalyptus, leather and black pepper. The heavy tannins are not off-putting in the least but rather match the power of the wine and create a memorable finish.

The promise on every Noble Wines' bottle?

Trying to live up to our name with every vintage. Enjoy!

Food Pairing Suggestions:
For a wine this big and this bold, matching food must be equally audacious. Choose foods with good fat (to stand up to the tannin) and big body, like ribeye steak, a juicy cheeseburger or smoked pork shoulder. The spiciness of the wine can accent leg of lamb or try Mexican cuisine as the heavy fruitiness can soften the perceived heat. For cheese, choose dry and strong cheeses that contain high fat content.
