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.
