Huston Vineyards 2014 Private Reserve Petite Sirah, Snake River Valley $55
The Alger family in Idaho’s tiny rural community of Huston works with urban winemaker Melanie Krause on their red program, and they’ve showcased Petite Sirah – a brawny Rhône grape – in this bottling from nearby Williamson Vineyard. Dense purple notes bring along notes of dark chocolate with lavender and sea salt. Nicely managed cherry skin tannins make for a big, ripe and well-made wine that received a gold medal at the 2017 Idaho Wine Competition.
Production: 80 cases
