Huntington Petite Sirah 2006 (6/10) ($12)
August 14, 2009
First, a bit about Petite Syrah…
This was my first petite sirah in recent memory. It shares a lot of the same robust characteristics as a Syrah/Shiraz, which can be attributed to their shared origins in the ancient grape world. If you’d like to read more about this varietal, check out this article
The Huntington was a decent dinner wine. It had strong dark cherry flavors with some spice to it, maybe some cinnamon. It had a short finish, nothing special. I tried this deep red with a variety of small plates at Swanky Bubbles in Cherry Hill, but it didn’t compliment anything that I was eating. This 2006 California wine is a good selection for a night out at a bar, but I wouldn’t recommend it for any food pairings.
