ARATAS Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2009 Score: 92 | $45 Appealingly dense and intense, with plenty of ripe and juicy wild blueberry and blackberry flavors, given traction by the firm tannins and notes of crushed rock, violet and tobacco spice. Powerful... Wine Spectator. A Petite Sirah wine from California in USA. 2009 Aratas Petite Sirah 750ml

Black through and through. This is a densely colored and highly tannic petite sirah still in its infancy. With time in the glass this reveals dark notes of black fruit and tar with hints of blueberry spice and crushed rock. This is a very young wine that needs time to soften the grippy tannins that don t seem to give up. There is a freshness about the wine that suggests more floral and fruit will emerge with time. Give this another 2-3 years to settle down. Geoffrey Binder.
