Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
The 2008 Hayne Petite Sirah exudes a dark purplish hue with an intense nose of blackberries, ripe cherries, lavender, citrus rind, and cured meats along with hints of earthy mushroom and dried herbs. Bright Bing cherry, raspberry, and wild plum flavors are accented by dried orange peel, black pepper, and creamy vanilla. The wine has a lush mouthfeel with a sleek balance of acidity, fruit, and chewy tannins that lead to a long finish that seems to keep rolling over the palate.

Pair with lamb shank, wild game, veal, beef or strong cheeses.

Allow this wine plenty of air upon opening. It is drinking wonderfully right now and will continue to age well for the next 6 to 9 years.
