Marston Family Vineyard – Petite Sirah 2015 – Calistoga, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, racy and offers a small power. It reveals notes of redcurrants, cassis and small notes of black cherry, flowers / rose associated with small touches of gray pepper as well as discreet hints of sweet spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a small creaminess, a slight tension, a good structure, a slight suavity as well as a beautiful and delicate matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, crushed redcurrants and touches of crushed blackberry, chocolate associated with small touches of cranberry (in the background) as well as very discreet hints of menthol, caramelization (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of olive tree. Tannins are fine and very slightly firm. Good length. There are discreet hints of dark chocolate on the persistence.
