Elyse Petite Sirah York Creek 2012 750ml
The 2012 York Creek Petite Sirah shows a great sense of place with 100% of the fruit coming from this famed vineyard situated high above the valley floor on Spring Mountain. It is jet black in color with intriguing aromas and flavors of blackberry, mulberry, anise, black plum and bacon fat. This is not a wine for the faint of heart. It is richly textured and full-bodied on the palate with powerful fruit flavors that are balanced by firm, ripe tannins leading to a long lasting finish. This wine is definitely age worthy and will benefit from decanting in the short term. Pair with strong cheeses, cassoulet, wild game, lamb shank or a nicely peppered steak.
