Foppiano 1999 Petite Sirah

We drank a bottle of the Talomas that I’ve written about earlier tonight with dinner.  Post dinner I decided I wanted another glass, and fetched a bottle of Foppiano 1999 Petite Sirah from the cellar.  I love this wine.  Spice, pepper, berries, chocolate, and a little bit of the "barnyard" that Pinot Noir is famous for.  Big fruity nose.  Long, long, long finish.  The 1999 is delicious, but fruity.  The 1998 was a brooding, bitter-sweet wine, even bigger, better, and more enticing.

No, I haven’t had any wine to drink tonight… not at all!
