2010 C Beck Petite Sirah
Region: Napa Valley, California, United States of America
Just got into Napa from a long day of traveling. Starting in Malibu for India's MBA graduation to Napa for celebrations! We decided to grab a heavy varietal and stick with Napa. This wine was a deep and dark ruby red, actually almost purplish black that completely coated the glass. Very interesting nose that was a little tight to start. Finally opened up over the next hour with some blackberries and freshly broken branches. Started with some softer dark fruits, but also coated with thick blackberries. Not overly sweet at all. Moderate tannins (7/10) and moderate plus body. Some red berries with their bright acidity near the finish. Moderate plus finish. Can see this becoming more integrated with time.
2016 till 2022+.
Price Point:$$ - Purchased for $42.00 at the Wine Shop at OxBow Market. Can be purchased for $38.00 from the estate.
