Sawtooth Winery-2012-Trout Trilogy Petite SirahIdaho’s Snake River Valley shows promise with Rhône varieties, and Sawtooth Winery’s Meredith Smith continues her string of success with this brawny grape from Block 55 off the estate. This is a lighter-style P.S. with aromas of fresh fig, plum, cinnamon sugar, rosemary and rose petal, backed by blackberry, horehound and smoked cranberry flavors. Good acidity leads to a finish of black pepper and Damson plum.
