WTN: Patience rewarded

Postby John Treder » Thu Jun 26, 2014 12:37 am

Foppiano Estate Bottled Petite Sirah, 1995
I bought this in a library clearance in January 2012 for $33.33. Fantastic wine! Fresh and youthful, but the brash tannins have departed, leaving black fruit and great structure. With braised beef at the Kenwood Restaurant.
Calif., Russian River Valley, 13.5% alcohol
