Peachy Canyon 2009 Petite Sirah
Origin: United States | California
Grown at the Mustard Creek Vineyard of Heaton, Alta Colina, which is the Paso Robles appellation. This deep purple blend of 83.5% Petite Sirah, 16.5% Syrah is quite the concoction!
From what I found in my research the markers here wanted maximum extraction from harvesting at the coldest times (which just seems like torture to me), to extended cold soak prior to fermentation (again with the cold)! After it is aged in French and Hungarian oak.
On the Nose – you are instantly hit in the face with candied blueberries, like the really sugary kids blueberry-flavored candies.
Pallet – an over load of blue fruit, ripe, very rich and extremely sweet. With a medium finish on it I would highly recommend food with this one.
This is not a winos wine, I would say its place is for someone who likes really sweet simple wines, or wants to get fancy and move away from their Barefoot or Jackson-Triggs.
