This week I’ve had an well-deserved and ongoing affair with Jacob Franklin – the dark purple color gets me every single time. I think I’ve blogged him before, but he’s certainly worthy of another mention. Online. Elyse Winery. $65.00 and worth every penny.
I discovered Elyse when about the same time I discovered Grenache and fell in love with both. After my visit with the Elyse winery I also discovered the brotherly side of Elyse: Jacob Franklin – our shipment of Petite Sirah just arrived, and it is very good. $65.00 online.
The Chef liked this wine, but it was a little on the sour side for me – although, it didn’t stop me from drinking it. Then again, maybe it tasted sour because my palette has been focused on cherry flavored NyQuil lately. Mmmm, NyQuil. Guenoc Petite Sirah is affordable at $13.00 a bottle if you like tart and peppery.
