100% Stanton Estate Varietal Petite Sirah Will Blow Your Socks Away . . . In A word . . . WOW

 

 Stanton Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

As you can read, we are continuing our Petite Sirah series with this remarkable wine. If you can take your eyes away from the mesmerizing deep violet hue, and scintillating legs, get a whiff of that nose: full of spice and coffee and let it roll down the tongue to the back of your throat to fully appreciate the big, powerful, intense (did we miss anything) mouthfilling taste. The finish may be the longest in the history of Sirahs.

For goodness sake, don’t drink anything before or after, but enjoy this masterpiece from aperitif to meat, pasta, oily fish, game, cheese and chocolat desserts A Wine On Line. A Major all the way.
