AntoLin Cellars 2015 Petite Sirah, Yakima Valley, $30

By on May 27, 2019

Antony Haralson pulls the grapes for this 100% Petite Sirah from acclaimed Elephant Mountain Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills above the Yakima Valley. Red black in appearance, the glass oozes out dark fruit and spice aromas such as black plum, blackberry and licorice as your nose nears the glass. The palate is full but with surprising acidity to give it a firm structure. The tannins are well integrated and balanced, creating a smooth mouth feel. Boysenberry jam with butter on toast comes to mind for the flavors, along with plum, pork belly and a multitude of spices, including anise and cinnamon. This merited a double gold at the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
