2018 Portalupi 'L. Venturi Vineyards' Petite Sirah Mendocino County

$41.95
WE94

Dark and restrained, yet substantial, this Petite Sirah opens with aromatics of dark cherry and plum grounded by notes of mushroom and stone. The palate is full-bodied and serious, with a warm layer of fine-grained tannins woven throughout flavors of blackberry, game and woodsmoke. The American oak keeps a restraining hand on the natural acidity, allowing the complexity of flavors to really shine.

Wine Enthusiast

This full-bodied wine is serious, powerful and age-worthy. The warm layer of fine-grained tannins that cloaks the enticing woodsmoke, game and blackberry flavors now will melt with time and bring out even more complexity. Best from 2025.
