Le Lapin Paso Robles Petite Sirah (NV)

wine number three from rabbit ridge. the petite sirah is another nice find and sells at the same $7-8 price. the nose is full of plum, blackberry, spice and earthy notes. the flavor is fruity and tannic, with plum flavors, followed by lots of spice notes. i got some really nice earth notes as well. this is an easy drinking red that will work well with a wide variety of foods, including hearty cold weather meals like stews and roasts.

Dear Plonk,
Thanks for your kind words! This is what makes wine so interesting. You can have your opinion and I can have mine. I reach out to the plonk lovers of the world who look for wine on limited budgets and unpretentious attitudes.
