From the winery:
Redolent of blackberries and dark chocolate, this wine is juicy and lush on the palate with a huge structure that will keep it tasting great for days on your counter (if you can stay away from it), and for decades in your cellar. We harvested 5 tons on September 23 at 25.8 Brix, pH 3.65 and 6.0 g/L titratable acidity. The wine matured in neutral barrels for 20 months. The finished wine is 14.7 % alcohol, 5.9 g/L titratable acidity and has a pH of 3.75.
The Suisun Valley, just a few miles from Napa Valley, is a magical spot for Petite Sirah and the 2014 People's Wine Revolution Bea's Knees Petite Sirah shows it off nicely. It begins with very pleasing aromas of black cherry, blackberry, spiced plum and licorice. The wine tastes moderately tannic and totally delicious with lots of deep and dense dark fruit flavors along with nice touches of baking spice, pepper and more licorice. Add in a smooth and serious mouthfeel and this is a great one not only for the Petite Sirah lovers, but for any serious red wine fan. It ends with a dry, long, lightly chewy, lip-puckering finish.
