De Bortoli 2006 Petite Sirah "dB Selection"

de Bortoli Petite Sirah
Excellent $6 wine! 8.5 out of 10 in the Under $10 category. I picked this up at Sam's Wine in Chicago, but it can be found online for $6.99 or so...easily worth double it's price.

Blueberry is the first flavor I notice, but it's not overwhelming. Slight tannis on the finish that makes it work well. Very nice for any night and we'd not be ashamed to serve this to guests. Fine work from the De Bortoli winery of South Eastern Australia. Go get a bottle!

I have actually had this one. I agree with the rating, a solid 8.5. I was on an Australian kick for a while and this is easily one of the finer.

Just saw this one for the first time on a menu at Naples Tomato in Naples, FL...for $28! The waiter recommended it and one other as the best sub-$50 wines on the menu (which was over 200+ wines). He must be a reader. ;)
