Big, ripe dark berries leave just a hint of sweetness on the tongue with overtones of chocolate and tobacco. A lot of peppery finish follows. Ample tannins and substantial body make this one an enormous and delicious swallow of wine.

Cinnamon toast, campfire and bacon fat aromatics lead into juicy wild berry flavors, with accessible tannins. Fun and easy to drink, with distinctive notes. Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2017.

Up front blueberry syrup, black cherry and coffee bean shake up the senses, finishing with warm cigar box cedar and vanillan flavors. Brawny, solid tannins send aftershocks down the throat creating a seemingly endless finish. When all is said and done this Petite Sirah leaves its mark of destruction, leaving teeth and glasses stained of its inky dark color.

Almost black in color, this is a blend of 85% Petite Sirah, 15% Petit Verdot with a pronounced smell and taste of smoked bacon, even smoked gouda, a huge-in-the-mouth wine thatrsquo;s got nothing petite (or petit) about it. Its lingering tannic smokiness begs for barbecue, smoked trout or such. The label is awesome.

Extremely spicy aromatics - clove, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Mingled with the smooth and tasty juicy cherry and berry flavors, this takes on a more cedary edge. An interesting and fun interpretation. Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now.

The 2005 Petite Petit, which is made from Petite Sirah, reveals beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit, notions of graphite, spring flowers, and earth presented in a medium to full-bodied, richly fruity style with no hard edges. It is atypically soft and supple for a Petite Sirah.

Intensely powerful and heavy-handed with the blackberries and black raspberries. This is a fruit bomb, but itrsquo;s a delicious fruit bomb! Any Robert Parker fans can surely appreciate the boldness of this 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. Not for the faint of heart mdash; donrsquo;t even think about trying to pair this with anything lighter than smoky barbecue ribs! This wine is a guilty pleasure mdash; instantly enjoyable not only for Petite Sirah drinkers, but also for fans of California Zin and Australian Shiraz.
