My Rating 89 Points.
Very inky in color (almost black) with a short deep purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, black plums, sweet cherries, dried figs, green vegetables, herbs, chocolates, leather, tobacco, earth, vanilla, oak, forest floor, cola, spices, peppercorn, smoke and alcohol.
Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Extra dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, leather, smoke, tar, beef jerky, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee and peppercorn.
Medium plus in finish with hugh, green tannins and black pepper.
This teeth staining Petite Sirah, is still very young and austere for most drinkers. A little unbalanced, with big tannins.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly, and will be better in 3 years, when all of the component will come together. Still has some heat at the back of the throat.
A Great wine to pair with BBQ Meats. I enjoyed it all by itself with a gorgeous weather.
15.4% alcohol by volume.
