2015 V Madrone Petite Sirah
On the rim, there are colors of deep, dark mahogany with touches of cranberry and watermelon on the rim. On the nose, there are beautiful aromas of cedar, dark chocolate, roast beef with thyme, truffle salt, tomato stems, iodine, violet, lavender, strawberry, cherry plum and soy sauce. The palate has a soft and round entrance evolving on sweet cherry pie with a tart acidity and granular tannins lingering on touches of pomegranate, yellow peaches and rose petals.
