Mirror Lake Central Coast Petite Sirah 2006

Mirror Lake Petite Sirah 2006This Mirror Lake Petite Sirah 2006 from the Central Coast of California is a bold, attention-getter big red. The color is deep — nearly black, with flavors of coffee and blueberries and spice (pepper and a hint of rosemary). This is a full bodied, rich, and tasty red. The finish is velvety smooth and long. This will pair well with our meatloaf and mashed potato dinner. (I make a pretty good meatloaf, if I do say so myself.) We just returned from a very quick trip up north (Traverse City) to see my folks (Bill & Delight Fagan). We drove up on Saturday and back on Sunday. Once we got home, I unpacked, did laundry, and grocery shopped while Tom mowed and weeded the yard. Now we are relaxing with a fragrant dinner in the oven. Ahhhhhhh.

Tom: This Mirror Lake Petite Sirah 2006 is a very, very good wine. It comes across as a sort of fruit-forward cabernet. Chocolaty, blackberry, and tobaccoy tastes. Tannic but also fruity. Very nice. It has bold, big tastes and so stood up well to our meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

    Dear Tom and Melody, I just got this bottle of wine from a wine club, tasted it, loved it, and now am searching but not finding a place to buy more. Would you happen to know how to find it?

    Any input is much appreciated..

    Thank you!

    Hello Helena, It’s fun to know that you enjoyed this wine as much as we did! You, like Tom & I, apparently love a big, bold red. My suggestion for getting more of this wine is to either 1) order directly from the website, which is: http://www.internationalWine.com or 2) call 1-800-826-9463. They have this wine. Please let me know if you are successful in getting this wine. Stay in touch!

    I bought a bottle of Mirror Lake and am tasting it in comparison with a German red. It is nice, easy to drink, flavorful and has a nice nose. I would enjoy it with steak, roast and a glouchester or pinnconning cheese. It is worth the $10, but we came upon a case at $4 each. Regards from sunny Indiana.

  4. Tom & Melody Says:

    Jim — Wow! What a deal! I can’t believe you found this wine for $4. That is a real, true bargain. Coincidentally, I am having this wine again, tonight. Tom chose it to go with our beef stew dinner. Thank you for your comments! Where in Indiana?
