J. Lohr Winery Tower Road Paso Robles Petite Sirah 2014, California 

My Rating 92 Points.   

Price $25.

Deep inky in color with a dark purple rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, blackberries, sweet cherries, figs, raisins, smoked vanilla, wood, earth, leather, chocolates, coffee, caramel, peppercorn and licorice.

Full bodied, bold and jammy, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, licorice, spices, oak, chocolates, leather, earth, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Long finish with nice, full tannins and cranberries.

What a great surprise on this Paso Robles Petite Sirah. Nicely balanced with great complexity. Rich and extracted, however, some might find it too fruity.
Needs time to open up properly.
I didn’t have the luxury of time, and the bottle finished too quickly.

Still young but so yummy already. I would love to meet again in 5 years.

14.9% alcohol by volume (love it!)
