The 2017 Brady Vineyard Petite Sirah is rich and luxurious, featuring deep crimson color and aromas reminiscent of blackberry, and black pepper with subtle notes of roasted vanilla and spice. On tasting, it shows opulent texture and savory berry and bramble flavors that echo the aromas. The wine is luscious, full-bodied with balancing gentle acidity and just a hint of velvety oak that lengthens the finish. Enjoy by itself, or with smoked or roasted meats, sharp cheeses and with dishes with rich flavorful sauces. After a short settling period, the wine was racked into French oak barrels where it completed malolactic fermentation and matured for 18 months.
