Cedarville Petite Sirah – from the wine virgin

The last wine was a favorite of almost everyone at the event. Cedarville Petite Sirah was a lot more flavorful than the previous Petite Sirah. The flavor was still muted somewhat, but the way in which it is presented to one’s taste buds is quite intriguing. Tastes of plum and blackberry are evident, but it explodes in the mouth in tiny bits and not all at once.

It was almost as if this wine likes to “tease” you. It was an interesting end to the night. Starting with really flavorful and deep, rich Shiraz wines and ending with this wine that kind of danced on your tongue was a fun experience. The differences in the same type of grape was quite enjoyable to smell and taste. Tasting the same grape, but from different regions, is always a fun experience. That’s why last Friday’s Blind Zinfandel Tasting was also a great event. Check back next week for a discussion on all of the Zinfandels we tried. Thanks for reading!
