Oakton Lane Petite Sirah (2007)

We have been bad. Very bad. Our lives have been so hectic lately and we have allowed many bottles of wine to be enjoyed without comment. Life does have a way of getting in the way of one’s best intentions.

But, tonight will be different. I am having a glass of this Petite Sirah. It is a Thursday night during a very busy week. Tom is in California at a conference. Tony (our son) has safely arrived in Paju, South Korea, and has started his new job. Tommy (our son) is working tonight. So, it is me and Trigger tonight, enjoying the quiet autumn evening and this delicious wine.

This is a smooth-tasting petite sirah that is bursting with flavors of pepper and dark fruit. It is luscious and fruity. I love the peppery finish. I have put together a casserole tonight. This will be a great addition to dinner.
