Herersquo;s a rich, balanced Petite Sirah with a lot going for it. Full-bodied and dry, itrsquo;s enormously deep in red and black currant, dark chocolate and anise flavors, with considerable tannins. Easy to find, with 55,000 cases produced, and a great example of why Petite Sirah is such a hot variety.
The Livermore Valley master of Petite Sirah outspaces much of its competition and is priced fairly. Well-made and very balanced for a larger production endeavor, this Petite opens with a nose of pepper and mocha, stewed berry and plum and develops into a full body thatrsquo;s lush and oaky but also shows plenty of minerality.
The wineryrsquo;s signature bottling remains a staple for PS lovers. Dark berry flavors pick up hints of spice and herb on the tannic finish. Itrsquo;s reasonably full-bodied, but it does have a slightly tart, constricted feel to the finish. Drink now or hold 3ndash;5 years.
A good value, the solidly constructed, well-made 2004 Petite Sirah Limited Release offers scents of tar, blackberries, currants and hints of minerals as well as earth.
Classic example of this incredibly full-bodied dark wine. A Petite Sirah this thick and rich is anything but ldquo;petite.rdquo; Mouthcoating and teeth staining, this monster red is packed with blackberry, blueberry, mocha and spice. Great for grilled steak or rack of lamb.
Ripe and broad-shouldered, a potent wine with excellent depth to the extracted blueberry, raisin and white pepper flavors. Almost viscous fruit texture folds into chewy, solid tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2009.
