Petite Sirah (featuring “El Tigre”) – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 24

“Brawn and fun combined in one,” is how Mark describes both his orange muscle car (“El Tigre”) and the high-horsepower wine Petite Sirah, both bucking with intensity and usually of Californian origin.  Mark explains why this California wine is perfect for winter months or whenever you “want a lot from your wine,” even if it’s a little John Mellencamp-style pain with your pleasure.
