Wine review: Ravenswood Vintners Blend Petite Sirah 2011, California

Petite sirah

Full-bodied, chunky and seamless in texture, this cuddly red offers up big fruit along with peppery spice and cigar overtones. It's the smooth jazz of wine, mercifully more David Sanborn than Kenny G. Smooth but a little bit gritty; $18.99 in Saskatchewan, $19.99 in Nova Scotia.
