Inviting aromas of black plum and a bouquet of hazelnut are followed by flavors of ollalieberry and a French oak signature on the palate. The 2013 Tower Road Petite Sirah expresses this early ripening vintage with dark fruit and restrained tannins. Pairs well with aromatic herbs and pan-seared meat dishes such as rosemary lamb chops with roasted fennel.
The power of smoky oak shows strongly on this wine. Black-cherry fruit aromas are woven in with caramel, fudge, vanilla and cappuccino scents. A strong tannic structure frames the palate, with juicy black-cherry and blueberry flavors enhanced with milk chocolate and more caramel.
