Mountain Tides Petite Sirah "Carbonic" Contra Costa 2019
100% Petite Sirah from Contra Costa that has been partially fermented carbonically to maintain freshness and to give an easy, fruity mouthfeel not dominated by tannins. Alcohol is just 11.5% – unheard of for Petite Sirah! Purple in appearance, with lots of crunchy black fruits like blackberry, cherry, and plum, as well as aromas of black pepper, licorice, thyme, and dark chocolate. Think of this as a tannic slightly more tannic Beaujolais. Just 5 barrels made.
