THE REVIEW

Ring in the New Year with decadence! If you are like us, you made a New Year's resolution to eat well and exercise more. If you are also like us, you have already broken your New Year's resolutions with authority. What better way to continue your indulgences and brave the extreme winter freeze than by enjoying the 2006 Robert Foley Pepperland Petite Sirah.
    This delicious red satisfies all of your most hedonistic desires. The wine is big, meaty and full bodied -- it is all about decadence. Receiving 92 pts from the Wine Spectator, Pepperland is wonderfully aromatic and full of personality. It displays freshly ground black and white pepper notes defined by zesty wild berry and mineral flavors. Savory and full-bodied, the tannins are firm and gripping, but balanced for a wine of this magnitude. Blackberries, chocolate, and roasted coffee abound in this massively concentrated red that is sure to put Petite Sirah back on the map.
    Probably the most underrated varietal in California, this big but civilized red can be enjoyed for a decade. Pair with your favorite chili recipe or any other winter delicacies. While it may seem like a while away, make sure you stash a few for BBQ season. Enjoy!Read More »
