2007 De Bortoli Petite Sirah: Smooth, concentrated, excellent with Greg's lamb stew

oct. 27, 2010: unexpectedly, greg prepared lamb stew with carrots, potatoes and onions. it was delicious! so we paired it with this south eastern australian petite sirah, which was wonderful. this 14 percent alcohol speciman was definitely smooth and creamy, with a sweet but slightly earthy quality. i could see why this petite sirah was recommended with lamb (it would seem to hold up against lamb's typically gamey qualities), but the stew greg prepared was not gamey at all.
