Wine writer, blogger and self-described “wine-geek,” Richard Jennings described Trueheart Petite Sirah ’09 as “the find” of the Dark & Delicious event last week. After tasting 77 Petites from 42 wineries, Jennings listed his top ten, and gave Trueheart a 93+ rating in a four-way tie for second place.
Jennings went on to say that the flavors are “intense and focused, but the wine is balanced and structured. It is one that should age beautifully.” His tasting notes: “Opaque black red violet color; focused, tart black fruit, iodine, tar nose; tasty, tight, tart black fruit, tar, tart black plum palate; needs 6 years; long finish 93+ points (2nd vintage).”

Richard wasn’t the only attendee who loved our wine. We had several folks taste our wine and then come back (sometimes two or three times) after they made the rounds through the event to tell us that ours was either their favorite, or one of their favorites.
This was our first year at Dark & Delicious. We had a great time sharing our labor of love and meeting so many Petite Sirah fans, and fellow producers.
We are are thrilled, and we hope to see you there next year. In the meantime, feel free to pop over to our online store and purchase a bottle or a case at http://www.trueheartvineyard.com/the-wine/2009-petite-sirah
