Sawtooth 2011 Trout Trilogy Petite Sirah (Snake River Valley)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30

This 100% varietal provides a pretty example of Petite Sirah, with appealing accents of dark coffee and plum. The soft, supple feel to the fruit flavors belies the firm tannins at this wine’s core. Amaro-like bitters on the finish are the only thing that holds this wine back from reaching further heights.

  • Online Exclusive

This is mostly Syrah, with small amounts of Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Grenache included. The Snake River Valley AVA crosses from Idaho into eastern Oregon; these are Idaho grapes as far as can be ascertained. The wine is tannic and well-made, with deeply-flavored, meaty fruit character. Wild berries and plums are suggested, with much darker streaks of coffee…
