2012 Petite Sirah Reserve, Shell Creek Vineyards

2012 Petite Sirah Reserve, Shell Creek Vineyards

Brambly red berries, clove, and cocoa modestly accentuate notes of earth and spice.

92 Point rating from Experiencing Wine, February 2019:

“Bending Branch’s 2012 Reserve Petite Sirah is among the best I have tasted — balanced and polished, bursting with juicy flavors, and worthy of an honorable place in your wine cellar. Dark and opaque (as Petite Sirah must be) and with reasonably strong tannins, it is a palate experience you simply must have if you are a fan of big and bold.”

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of plum jam are laced with nuances of tarragon and vanilla. It is concentrated and viscous, with fine-grained tannins that give the impression of dusty blackberry and dried fig. The extended finish lingers with dark notes of coffee and toast.

Food Pairing Notes
Full-bodied wine demands full-bodied food - roasted leg of lamb with anchovy crust. The salt, fat, and medium rare juices all serve to mellow the perception of tannin and accentuate the ripe fruit of this exceptional wine.
