After a snowy, cold weekend in South Lake Tahoe, I am excited to be back home where the weather is a little warmer. Tonight I am grilling some burgers and opening a bottle of 2008 Harney Lane Petite Sirah. I am looking forward to trying another Lodi Petite Sirah because, so far, they have not disappointed me.
Harney Lane’s 2008 Petite Sirah is 100% Petite Sirah from Lodi. It was harvested in September of 2008 and bottled in April 2010. It has 14.5% alcohol content and a suggested retail of $24. For more information please see www.harneylane.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
The Harney Lane Petite Sirah pours a deep, dark purple. The nose is smoky and filled with notes of dark cherries, blueberries, and dark chocolate. This is a fruit-filled, juicy Petite Sirah. It tastes of ripe, dark berries and black pepper with hints of cedar and cocoa. The Harney Lane has earthy tannins and a lingering finish. This is a solid Petite Sirah and once again, Lodi produces a nice wine. This wine really compliments my burger so now it’s time to enjoy the both of them together. Cheers!
