A perfect 10 Saturday Splurge! We review the Jeff Runquist Petite Sirah.
Joe & Enver Salman – Growers
Jeff Runquist – Vintner
The Salman Vineyard produces exceptional wine with intense color and deep rich flavors.
Produced & Bottled by Jeff Runquist Wines
The 2017 Jeff Runquist Petite Sirah begins with a very pleasing aroma of vanilla, caramel and spice plus some dark berry fruit.
Taking a sip reveals blackberry, black currant, tannic goodness with quite a bit of oak influence. Smooth with a substantial mouthfeel, this full-bodied wine has fantastic depth of flavor. This is some absolutely delicious Petite Sirah.
It ends with a wonderful, dry, grippy, long finish. I’ve run out of superlatives to describe this one but needless to say it gets a perfect 10 on our Taste Rating scale. Is this an under-appreciated grape or what?
