Heavenly with chocolate, take a trip to the sweet side with the Graton Ridge Petite Sirah Dessert Wine from the Russian River Valley. Save an incredible $16 a bottle but just for the next day!
If you've followed our Insider Deals for long you know that we love Petite Sirah, so we were really excited to see one in dessert wine form.
This one will make a fabulous pairing for all those Christmas desserts coming up! Sold in 375ml bottles as it packs quite a punch at 18.3% alcohol, it will also stay good in the fridge for a couple weeks after opening so you can slowly indulge as you finish off all the Christmas cookies.
We found it to be a really nice change-up to Port and I'm honestly not sure why we don't see more of these dessert wines from California. Zinfandel and Petite Sirah in particular can be used to make some really wonderful fortified wines.
Today's wine has an SRP of $28 (per 375ml bottle) and is typically only available direct from the winery (Furthermore Wines) at that price.
With today's Insider Deal; however, you can save almost 60%! For the next day you can get 4 bottles for only $48 plus only $5 for shipping which means you're saving an incredible $16 a bottle!

From the winery:
Petite Sirah from the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County.
Plum, black cherry, oak and spice aromatics. Lightly sweet upon entry, with black cherry and dark chocolate flavors and a finish of baking spice.
Produced & Bottled by Graton Ridge Cellars
The 2015 Graton Ridge Petite Sirah Dessert Wine from Furthermore Wines begins with an enticing aroma of plum, blackberry, blueberry and black cherry plus a little raisin and plenty of spice.
The wine tastes sweet, spicy and very good. Full of wonderful spice notes throughout, there is also plenty of sweet (but not cloying) dark fruit. While it's not overly complex, it is just darn good.
In addition to pairing wonderfully with the chocolate lava cake* made by one of my daughters, this is also a great wine for a cold night by the fire. It ends with a lip-smackingly satisfying and savory finish. Serve it slightly chilled.
*Chocolate lava cake not included. Cheers!
