Bear and Crown Petite Sirah 2010

Bear and Crown Petite Sirah 2010Purchased from Naked Wines, $14.99


Aaron:  This full wine will go well with strong meats.  A dark woodsy smell with cocoa flowing through a rocky stream spread into a complex flavor which changes as it sits in your mouth.  Starting as smooth and rich it turns sharp and spicy to keep the drinker interested.  A bit of metallic undertones cut through the palate but spill blackberry juice along the way giving this a bit of a gamy feel.  90 points

Teri: It’s been a while since I have had a Petite Sirah, and this one is strong and full of spicy blackberry and tobacco flavors. Noticeable medium tannins and a spicy nose make this a petitie sirah for those who like bold wines. I found this bottle better with food than on its own. 88 points
