Product Overview

The 2017 Runquist Petite Sirah has a deep purple color that borders on inky. The edges of the wine, visible when the glass is tilted, have a bright almost fluorescent hue. The aroma is like a parade of ripe dark fruits; blackberry, marionberry, and cassis. Aging one hundred percent of this wine in new French oak has generated a bouquet featuring luscious sweet caramel and mocha. The flavors of concentrated smoky boysenberry and black currant are savory and rich with plenty of creamy oak that seems to roll on forever never ceding the stage to the chewy mouth-drying astringency so frequently associated with this variety. This is a rare expression of Petite Sirah; rich flavors carried by a wine with a texture that is soft and supple to the point of becoming silky. The tannins are mature and integrated. The finish of this wine with lingering notes of butterscotch and perfectly toasted oak is an irresistible invitation for another glass.
