Definitely not Petite

*Disclaimer: I got this out of a box of wines from Hahn Family Cellars when I went to the Wine Blogger Conference this summer.

We all know I sort of love Petite Sirah. A lot. After Zinfandel, it was the second kind of red wine that made me stand up and say “yum.” I dig the deep dark wines made from Petite Sirah grapes and all the blueberry pie that comes with them. So I jumped at the chance to give this Petite a try when I saw it in a box of wines from Hahn Family. Especially given that you can find this Petite for as little as $10 online. The 2007 Huntington Petite Sirah clocked in at 14.5% alcohol by volume and a Diam closure.

On the nose I found blueberry, blueberry cobbler, cream, vanilla cream, blueberry ice cream, chocolate, spice, and anise. In the mouth I got strawberry, chocolate, bright berries, blue fruit, something that I want to call huckleberry, and lots more strawberry. Overall I found this Petite to be fruity and big, like dessert in a glass. For $10 this is a steal.

  1. I have no idea what huckleberry tastes like. Of course, I’m the guy who finds lingonberry all the time in older Aussie big reds. Maybe I’ll bust out a schnozzberry in one of my reviews soon and see if anyone’s actually paying attention…

    Oh, your wine. Yes, that sounds tasty and dense. Like pie in a glass.

  2. Huntington has been my go-to P.S. since we owned the wine shop. Glad you enjoyed it too.
