Clayhouse Red Cedar Vineyard Paso Robles 2009 Petite Sirah, $18.74-$24.99, 92 points, with a nose of sweet spice, earth, and cedar, I'm already reminded of how much I love their wines.
Flavors are mirrors of the aroma, carried on a near full body of strong acidity and intense, but drinkable tannin (Drink now and just maybe for years to come). In addition, loads of smoky black fruit and licorice complement this red wine of intensity, followed by a long persistent finish of spice (VERY DRY RED WINE).
Pair this wine with a whole host of American and Mexican cuisine; I had this with a black-peppercorn buttered mashed potato with pork gravy on prosciutto, but tostadas, grilled steak, or nearly any spicy foods will go well with this versatile red wine; don't forget simple things like hamburgers or Saturday's hotdogs and beans.
