The 2017 Foppiano Russian River Valley Petite Sirah is a superbly elegant version of this often overly extracted varietal wine. This estate-bottled wine's aromas resemble cloves and sage, blueberry yogurt, and fresh jam on buttered toast. The palate starts with cocoa powder and violets then lifts to chilled blueberries. The finish is cinnamon toast crunch and dark chocolate.
