2011 Jessie’s Grove Petite Sirah Lodi

2011 Jessie's Grove Petite Sirah  Lodi California USA  97
15.5%, 750 ml, $22
Rich, ripe and brawny with notes of blackberry, blueberry, cherry, mocha, creamy vanilla, and red licorice, earthy notes of potting soil and mushroom, savory notes of seared meat, pepperoni, and sumac, and a hint of chili pepper. Wines like this can often go overboard but this one is lively, soft, and bright as oak tannins ramp up, and it finishes fresh, fruity, and minty.
