Michael and David Phillips-Petite Sirah-Earthquake-Lodi-California-2008-$21.99-A huge nose of dark fruits and spice, dark black purple in color.  A huge, full bodied PS, not for the faint of heart or Old World fans.  With  blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries that finishes with a dark spicy chocolate and despite it’s big 15.5% alcohol level  maintains the heat due to the bold fruit levels.    Decant for a couple hours or hold for a few years.                  WE-92                 CR-91                    Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
