J Runquist 2020 Petite Sirah
2020 Jeff Runquist Petite Sirah Clarksburg
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91 Points
This is an immediately appealing Petite Sirah that opens with vivid aromas of black raspberry, pomegranate, sour dark cherry, black peppercorn, clove and oolong tea. It has a sleek texture in the mouth, where the tannins are polished and unobtrusive while flavors centered on mixed black and red fruits and peppery spice come to the forefront and linger well. Notes of coriander seed, star anise and baking spice are added to the mix as the wine airs. A delicious dinner wine now, it should remain so for the next five years or so. 1800 cases produced.
