2014 Madrigal Petite Sirah Napa Valley
Madrigal Vineyards Napa Valley Petite Sirah begins with a beautiful aroma of deep blackberry, a little leather, anise, black pepper, and spice. Tasting the wine reveals tons of depth in the rich, dark, amazingly delicious fruit. The wine is thickly tannic but there’s so much fruit that it is still nicely balanced. It’s also very smooth. And did I mention how delicious it was? It does have a bit of sediment after all those years in the bottle so you may want to filter it when serving. It ends dry, with very good length and a hint of oaky spice, but mostly just more rich and savory dark fruit. I’ve purchased this beauty multiple times and everyone I’ve poured it for has absolutely loved it. My only concern is when this vintage will no longer be available!
