2004 two angels petite sirah: great with seasoned steak


april 26, 2009: this paired very well with a chicago-style steak. it seemed to really enhance the personality of the meat, so that its richness was infused with more flavor while the sirah just seemed a strong and sturdy dance partner. i had initially hoped that the babcock pinot noir would work with the steak, too, but i was wrong. in fact, the pinot's acidity increased with its exposure to the steak, making it an unattractive combination. victoria thought the sirah was definitely heavier than the pinot (as is to be expected). greg thought it was most excellent. the nose has a very caramel odor and is very complex. he said it has the flavor of cherry, very smooth after being opened for an hour. victoria adds that the nose has a strong scent of blackberry jam. 14.8 percent alcohol. bottled and cellared at oakville, calif. unknown, but probably around $30.
