Blending Zinfandel and Petite Sirah in various parts of California has become a regional calling card. After considering the fine points of the 2014 Night Watch, it all makes sense. A lavender and white pepper nose are a prelude to the cherry and blueberry density. Dried cranberries and dark plums add layers to a structured body. The tannins and acidity are evident but mellow resulting in a rounded and lasting finish. Paso Robles provenance and an emerging tradition make for a resounding and trailblazing blend. Sextant Wines has set a delicious benchmark.
