2010 Petite Sirah

My favorite Petite Sirah of the tasting was the Trueheart Vineyard 2010 Petite Sirah ($35) from Sonoma Valley. Only 324 cases were produced by winemaker Alex Beloz. Very deep, dark purple in color, this was incredibly well-balanced, with ripe blackberry, along with very nice PS pepper, a great mouth-feel and an intense but not overly extracted presentation. It had great structure with well integrated tannins and eschewed the fruitier, sweeter presentation that is found in some Petite Sirahs these days. It was so good I couldn’t bear to spit it out and swallowed. This is one of the very finest Petite Sirahs I’ve had in recent years and the sort of Petite Sirah that makes the varietal so dear to me. I plan to order some of this and take careful notes.”
