Bright and exuberant with sweet, meaty, and spicy flavors. Left a slightly chalky sweet coating in my mouth - very enjoyable. Read more

Gamey, berry nose, with a juicy center that reminds me a bit of the inside of a jelly donut. It's a little more oaked than that, of course. Read more

Pencil shavings and bright, precise fruit on the nose. Really intense aromatics with white pepper, grilled gamy meat, freshly roasted coffee beans and red currant jam, nuanced lemon rind and violet notes. This has a bit of an extracted feel to it but with masses of sweet fruit helping to buffer the formidable tannins. Absolutely packed with fruit that has a touch of a leathery edge but remains fresh and vibrant with lovely boysenberry and black plum tones. More fruit than spice driven on the palate with some roasted herb and meat notes on the back end leading to a rich, chewy yet balanced vanilla laced long finish Absolutely exuberant to drink! 92pts

Spicy nose of lilacs and coffee. Good acids on the attack, very fruity, rich and mouthfilling. Theres a core of fruit (blackberries, plums) and then some nice dirty aged notes on the finish (barnyard, leather) - very nice

Nose of Berries & medicinal noes leads to sweet tar & heavy black tea fruits, very woody.

Really great rounded out body, with perfectly balanced sugars and tannins. A little bit of smokehouse bbq flavor, with the right touch of charred animal. Mild compote/glaze. Toasted marshmallows and blueberries. Love it!

I've seen this house, and this varietal- but haven't been convinced to commit. Maybe now, maybe MORE than maybe, I have been. Great Write up Greg. It's nice to be able to trust such reviews.

This Petite Sirah comes from some of the oldest plantings in Paso Robles. The wine has good tannins, it's rich in dark fruit of black plums with spicy black pepper, brown sugar and vanilla.
