Earthquake Petite Sirah

The last couple nights I drank a no date petite sirah from Lodi Vineyards in Grafton, CA, a suburb of Santa Barbara.  It ran me about $25 (mostly for the cut-out label and silly poem on the back, apparently; and the bottle weighs as much empty as most bottles weigh full).

Honestly, it was well worth the $25.  Maybe not the top petite sirah I've drunk this winter, but deep and rich with a note I couldn't quite put my taste buds on -- smokey maybe?  It was like drinking a fine balsamic vinegar.

As I was drinking it I was thinking this would go great with a London broil.  Nice wine; poem kind of lame.
