Wine Recommendation – Inheritance 2006 Petite Sirah
We tend to buy wine at Trader Joe’s. We now make it a practice to ask one of the knowledgeable clerks what wine must we take home, their top pick. January 10th we visited the Brea, California store and asked this question. The clerk told us that his pick was Inheritance, a Petite Sirah. The year was 2006 and was selling one penny shy of twelve dollars. We had this wine while watching the football payoffs. The host of the party was taken back by how special this wine tasted. We score this wine over 90, probably 93.
An outrageous review at wine library tv web site, Episode #523 covers this wine. This wine is the third bottle reviewed, can be found here: http://tv.winelibrary.com/2008/08/20/a-tasting-of-value-petite-sirah-episode-523/?cp=11
