2019 Dreamville Petite Sirah
The 2019 Akash Dreamville Petite Sirah is like ten wines in one glass, offering both immediate gratification upon release, and reward for those with enough patience to put it to bed for a few years. The jammy, spice-laden explosion of concentrated flavor belies something deeper in the form of structured, naturally occurring tannins that diminish over time. Smoke from a crackling fire, chocolate, and graham crackers come to mind when you get a first whiff, followed by oodles and oodles of wild blackberries ripe from the vine. Bring a toothbrush for this one! You'll thank us later.
For food pairings, we lean towards roasted duck breast, pasta with smokey grilled eggplant, and all things barbecued or bacony.
