Gehricke 2017 Sonoma Valley Petite Sirah
Saturated with pigments of deep purple and onyx, this wine is dense to the eye. Rich aromas of ripe blackberries, licorice and cracked peppercorns entice the senses. On the palate, this wine is full of fruit expression with flavors of black currants, blackberries and the freshness of black cherries at their prime. A bold and concentrated mid-palate welcomes a surprisingly fresh finish with vibrant acidity. A kiss of toasted oak and a hint of violets round out the finish. This Petite Sirah is bold with longevity for those patient enough to cellar it.
