2008 Petite Sirah Sierra Foothills Thor Vineyard
Blackberries, violets, white pepper and anise combine in the
nose to create that enigmatic Sierra Foothills petite perfume.
The mouth displays dark berry and blood orange fruit
framed by solid tannins with accents of black tea and sage.
The grower tells us the vineyard was named for his dog,
Thor, who saved the acreage from certain destruction,
though the details are vague.
