1992 Edgewood Estate Petite Sirah, Napa Valley ($10).

Wine of the week

February 09, 1997|By Michael Dresser

This hearty, full-bodied red wine offers concentrated blackberry fruit with notes of herbs and smoked meat.

There's enough fruit to offset a considerable lashing of tannin, which indicates this wine could age for five to 10 years (although not that many people bother to cellar budget-priced petite sirahs).

Petite sirah can yield rather rustic, raspy wines, but this version retains the grape's strength and shows some class.
