2015 Sebastiani Late Harvest Petite Sirah (500ml)
e 2015 Late Harvest Petite Sirah is a dark purple garnet color with high-toned aromas of ripe plums, mulberries, lime leaves, and rum raisin. Soft and slightly sweet on the palate, it is bursting with avors of raspberry syrup, soy and briar patch. Balanced acidity and rich tannins lead way to a long and satisfying finish that will leave you wanting another sip. While great on its own, this wine is best served with any dark chocolate dessert such as molten cake with a fresh raspberry sauce. – David Nakaji, Winemaker
