Back to a better petite sirah, a 2006 Greg Norman petite sirah from Napa that ran me about $15.
The label says notes of violet, raspberry, blackberry, plum, and anise. I definitely got the anise. But there was another note that I couldn't identify. Caramel or butterscotch maybe? It made for interesting drinking.
On the other hand, this had a bit of a sharp edge to it that I didn't find with the Cameron Hughes earlier this fall. It might be that food with it, like a London broil, would mellow it.
A nice petite sirah for the price; I recommend it.
