Seven Sinners Wines The Ransom Old Vines Petite Sirah 2012 Lodi, California 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price 15.

Deep purple in color with a purple rim.

Gorgeous nose of blueberries, blackberries, figs, smoke, acetone, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, oak, vanilla, bell pepper, tobacco and coffee.

Full bodied and bold, with high acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tart cherries.

An average red wine. Good right out of the bottle but died after an hour. Lots of vegetable notes on the palate, too much for my taste. A Simple Petite Sirah with a great nose. The palate is a little disappointing, though.

13 5 % alcohol by volume.
