Two Angels Petite Sirah

Two Angels Petite Sirah

Two Angels Petite Sirah

The Two Angels Petite Sirah is “dark as the night” and boasts savory aromas of dark berry, violets, pomegranate, tamarind and roasted game. Abundant fruit flavors are nicely integrated with toasted oak and roasted coffee undertones. What is especially alluring, given the dark color and ample, rich tannins, is the round, almost silky mouth feel and the pleasing, lingering finish.

Serve at room temperature with robust dishes, including beef, venison, turkey, game birds and semi-soft or hard cheeses.

    Is there any discernible taste difference in a Sirah (or Syrah) and a Petite Sirah? I’ve had both, and admittedly my I’m a newbie to the wine tasting world, but I couldn’t tell them apart!

      Nicole,
      Thanks for the question, I think most people are thinking that when they’re choosing a wine. Syrah tends to be a very smooth, intense wine with huge jammy black berry and black currant flavors that intensify on the tongue through the entire taste with that intense flavor returning to the center of your tongue seeping out of every pore of your mouth where it erupts into a firework of bright, clean, delicate spices such as white pepper.

      Shiraz is the exact same grape as syrah, except you will notice it tends to come primarily from the southern hemisphere. I find it to typically be stylistically different in that it is a bit more controlled on the palate with jammy black fruits intermingled from start to finish.

      Petite Sirah, is a different grape. It, as indicated by the name, tends to be a bit smaller fruit. typically, smaller fruits pack a bigger punch and I find this true with petite sirah. The color tends to be a bit darker, the fruit flavors more intense and less jammy and the spice usually will be huge and begins about mid-palate.

      Hope this helps!
