2017 V Madrone Petite Sirah
On the rim, shiny, brilliant dark cherry with touches of cranberry and magenta. On the nose, there is an explosion of English candy, rose, lavender, blueberry pie, fern, licorice, hazelnut and lilac. The palate has a soft entrance evolving on a fresh mid-palate with dense granular tannins lingering on rose candy, raspberry candy and freshly picked citrus.
