L.A. Cetto 2004 Petite Sirah (Mexico)
L.A. Cetto wines are always fun to bring to a BBQ and the reason is simple: people inevitably pick up the bottle (after they have tried it) and they take a second and sometimes a third look at the bottle, "I didn't know Mexico made wine". They do and it's usually pretty good, especially the ones from Cetto. I have tried their Zinfandel from them along with Nebbiolo and this Petite Sirah; and I find they offer great value. This one is 6 years old and still delivered a lot of pleasure and enjoyment: the nose smelled of black fruit and white pepper while the palate was plummy and peppery, quite a tasty treat for BBQ season.
