    Nice deep ruby in color. Upon opening, stony nose with blackcurrant and black plum aromas with a stemmy, earthy quality. Hints of bay leaf. On the palate, it has a huge entry with dark flavors of bitter cocoa, espresso, roasted meat, bay leaf, fennel, cassis and a graphite note with a chalky texture. Lingers on black coffee and smoke. It's unexpectedly brooding for this bottle of cab. For my taste, this needs time or serious decanting. It's well structured, but for me is astringent in its potency and darkness. Hopefully air adds some finesse. Recommended with food and with time open.

    Beautiful rich color in the glass. Expressive nose of fresh lilies, strawberry, kiwi and suggestions of cotton candy. Welcoming aromas of bubblegum. Luscious and juicy acidity on the palate with a brightness. Flavors of watermelon, cranberry, pomegranate and strawberry drippings with an interesting tinge of green, like a streak of cilantro. Persistent on the palate with a lasting finish. Would be well suited with lighter cuisine along with chicken, fish or lighter pork dishes. 89 pts.

    Very fragrant when opened, but calms way down in the glass. Nose of dried red berries, dark plum and cigar box. Medium bodied on the palate with an entry of tar, toast, cedar and dried dark fruit skins accented by cocoa powder and spent espresso. Youthful acidity is bracing and the tannin attack is swift and powerful. Makes the experience somewhat bitter and out of balance with super drying tannin and somewhat harsh acidity. Time should integrate this better. All in all, the fruit profile is a pleasant dark berry/plum fruit tape with hints of stony minerality and a chalky feel on the palate. Finishes on a tertiary note of dried mushroom, leaves and berries. 84 pts.

    Spicy black plum with dark, roasty qualities. Woody, but nice. Definitely needs food. 88 pts. 9/15/13 at Trinitas

    Nicely balanced and structured. Not overly heavy like many petite sirahs are to me. Good tannin/acid balance. Meat jus and bacon fat intermingle with plum and dark berry fruit. 90 pts. 9/15/13 at Trinitas
