Guglielmo 2007 Petite Sirah

Guglielmo 2007 Petite Sirah

It’s Top Chef Masters time again and you really can’t enjoy an episode without a glass of wine or two.  Tonight I am opening up a bottle of Guglielmo 2007 Petite Sirah.  This will be the 13th bottle of Petite Sirah that I have indulged in the last 2 weeks (I have had a little help with that) and I keep thinking I will eventually drink one that really disappoints.  I am hoping that tonight is not going to be that night…

Now the Fun Part- Drinking the Wine

The Guglielmo pours a deep garnet.  It has an enchanting nose with ripe blueberries, plum, clove and a hint of pepper.  This is a Petite Sirah with refined character.  It is a medium-bodied wine with tastes of plum, ripe blackberry, and clove .  There are notes of oak and cedar with controlled tannins and a peppery finish.  The Guglielmo is such a smooth wine and is easy to drink.  It should only get better with a few more years.  Yet another night I am impressed with a beautiful bottle of Petite Sirah.

My Wine Rating- B+
