Preston of Dry Creek 2019 Grenache Dry Creek Valley
The 2020 Petite Sirah is big but balanced, weighty but lively. After a little time in bottle, the aromas have really started to pop: blackberry, blueberry, and even olallieberry jam. In the mouth these berry flavors rest right on a knifes edge of robust ripeness and zippy freshness, and the resulting tension is compelling. A hint of menthol adds complexity, and a healthy acidity delivers all this flavor without fatigue and heaviness. The cheese course awaits.
