Stags’ Leap Winery Petite Sirah 2013

Dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays black berries to match the nose. On the medium length finish there’s some nice smooth tannins along with some nice dryness. I would give it an 88 or so. An easy sipping wine, and food friendly too … Quite nice.

From the LCBO web site:
Stags’ Leap Winery Petite Sirah 2013 — VINTAGES#: 590356
STYLE – Full-bodied & Smooth
Stags’ Leap has always had a great reputation for its Petite Sirahs. The 2013 Petite Sirah from Napa is 78% Petite Sirah, 11% Syrah, 8% Grenache and the rest Mixed Blacks, aged 12 months in 100% American oak. Blackberry and blueberry fruit, floral notes, licorice and camphor are all present in this medium to full-bodied, but excruciatingly tannic wine that needs at least 7-8 years of cellaring. If the tannins don’t subside, my rating will look excessive. Drink: 2024-2034. Score – 88+. (Robert Parker Jr.,, March 2016) $39.95
