    There’s nothing petite about this Sirah. The nose of this 2020 Monte Serena exhibits juicy notes of plum, raspberry, and subtler hints of white pepper. On the palate, you’ll find tingling acidity and firm tannins, perfect for emphasizing this red’s natural fruitiness. The finish lingers on and on with rolling clouds of smoke, cloves, and spices. Petite Sirah is only just coming its own as a single varietal wine. For most of its history, these tannic berries were seen as too bold and bitter to make up a glass with no lighter reds for company. California’s changing that trend. Only the Golden State could impart such layered, robust flavor into this Monte Serena. Dry summers and cooling nighttime breezes ensure a prolonged growing season and maximum juice concentration in each of these Petite Sirah berries. This bold Californian red deserves bold culinary company. Pour yourself a glass with savory dishes like oven barbecue ribs, brown sugar glazed ham, or sauteéd mushrooms drizzled with garlic butter.
