Pets Petite Sirah – from the wine virgin

Pets Petite Sirah was the first Petite Sirah I have ever tried – that I know of. I could definitely see why this was called “petite.” Compared to the other wines, it didn’t taste as bold or peppery. I wonder if tasting all of these bold and flavorful syrahs before this one led my taste buds to believe it was not as complex.

I don’t like to say it was watered down, but that is kind of what it tasted like. It was still very drinkable though. Chris told me that it is because I have an “immature palate.” This means that I’m able to pick out the big and bold tastes of wine, but am not that great at picking out subtle flavors yet. This made sense and I can see why I would view this one as “watery” or “airy.” The next Petite Sirah was still not as bold, but extremely nice in flavor and balance.
