Turley Rattlesnake Ridge Petite Sirah 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
Very deep opaque purple-black in color, the 2017 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge has a very pretty nose of fresh violet, lilac, peach cobbler, perfumed earth, cinnamon and nutmeg with black cherry liqueur, smoked meats and fried herbs hints. Full-bodied and huge in the mouth, it has a singular, savory palate with perfumed notes, framed by very firm, very chewy tannins, finishing very long and very layered. This is a beast! 400 cases produced.
Deeply structured and loaded with personality, offering blueberry and blackberry flavors, laced with dried orange, sandalwood and pepper notes that persist toward burly tannins. Best from 2021 through 2026. 414 cases made.
