A compilation of Petite Sirah from the Texas Hill Country, grown on the Becker Estate and Drew Tallent vineyards, plus a little Counoise from the Farmhouse Vineyards of West Texas. The 2018 Petite Sirah is a big wine, forward on the nose and palate; bold and brazen, it begs for attention and rich, fatty foods.
Aging Petite Sirah in predominately American, neutral oak barrels allows the fruit to shine and the tannins to mellow. This wine opens with an extravagance of florals and fruits. Decadent, ripe dark fruits balance medium tannins, while smoky oak balances the herbal notes, leading to a lush, long finish.
Aromatics: Extremely aromatic, heady violets, rich blueberries, figs, cocoa, vanilla, mild anise and eucalyptus
On the Palate: Sugar plums, ripe blueberries and blackberries, medium tannins and acidity

I've had the majority of the wines offered in this vineyard/winery and this one in particular is by far of my favorites. I absolutely love this one.

As a big red lover, I have always liked the Canada Family and Wilmeth cabs. But the Petite Syrah may be my favorite of the Becker family of red wines. Lucious dark fruit and just enough tannins to make it interesting. Good reds from Texas are few and far between from where I sit. This is definitely one of the best from the Lone Star state.
