Titus Vineyards Petite Sirah, 2006

From their tasting notes:

“Our dark, inky Petite Sirah has lush aromas and flavors of blackberry, licorice, caramel and fruit compote.  It’s broad mouth-feel along with generous bramble and barrel spice notes balance the fruit creating a rich complex, approachable Petite Sirah…lingering dark chocolate finish…”

Once again, I did not refer to the notes before tasting.  Trusty note book says “more aromatics, more tannic, chewy”

For me, I liked this quite a bit more than the Zinfandel.  I liked the big chewy tannis that reminded of  not quite ripe blackberry fruit.  The finish was definately longer, and chocolaty. 541 cases produced, retail $36.
