2004 Twisted Oak Petite Sirah

I know I bid farewell from this blog but every now and then I'll post something when I run across a wine worth writing about and I feel like writing about it - notice the "and" rather than "or" clause, haha. That second part is the real qualifier because I still don't feel much like writing anything yet.

This is the economy version of the blog - no pictures and no YouTube matching video. I'm just too lazy!

The Twisted Oak 2004 Petite Sirah is one that I wanted to let you know about because I enjoyed it very much. It had nicely perfumed aromas that enticed me to take a sip. On the palate there was a nice balance of cedary wood and slightly tart, but ripe black and red fruits held together by gripping tannins. The tannins added texture, rather than making my mouth pucker. I liked the flavors and concentration in this wine that I purchased from WineQ back in 2007 sometime. It's definitely a wine worth trying.
