Lindsay Creek Vineyards 2012 Petite Sirah, Washington, $34

By on December 12, 2014

lindsay-creek-vineyards-logo-blackArt and Doug McIntosh grew up growing grain on the family farm in Lewiston, Idaho, and now they are making wine together after going through Washington State University’s certification program. Art makes the wine, while Doug manages the vineyard they planted in 2007. This two-barrel lot of Petite Sirah lives up its pedigree, opening with a nose of ripe plum, black currant, dark chocolate and pencil shavings. Inside, it’s massive, dense and delicious with those same dark tones, intense flavors and focused tannins that provide length as well as depth. It received a silver medal at this fall’s Idaho Wine Competition.
