Deep purple. Spice, pepper. Berries and chocolate. Smooth tannins. No real mid-palate. Short finish.

Spicy, dark currant aromatics and flavors dominate deep rich fruit that is so thick you might want to sip it with a spoon. Oh, and one more thing, be sure to use a toothpaste with extra whitener - you'll need it!

Big, ripe and expressive, there's enough cherry and berry flavor lurking to merit attention, but with its mouthful of chewy, gritty tannins, cellaring into 1998 or '99 is recommended.

Opaque and purple in the glass... vivid berry and chewy tannins are present in the nose as well as on the mouthfeel. A very affordable wine with intensity for 3-5 years of aging. Try now with a hearty beef stew or steak on the grill.

A ripe and intense red from an underappreciated varietal, this wine offers rich plum, pepper, wild berry and leather notes, filling out on the palate and picking up a gamy edge. Altogether quite complete. Drink now through 2008.

Relax in the warmth of your own sanctuary or when possible find your way to a mossy hillside of Sonoma County and drink this luscious Petite Sirah. Medium-bodied rich with aromatic spices and ripe blackberry undertones. The deep color is intoxicatingly itself. Enjoy alone or with a seafood dish, abundant with fresh tomatoes, basil and garlic, mescaline greens ending with a homemade blackberry cobbler.

Better balanced than the Bacigalupe as well as more attractive and charming is the 2003 Petite Sirah Estate. Exhibiting black fruits, smoke, graphite, and mineral characteristics, it is a medium-bodied, relatively precocious Petite Sirah to consume over the next 5-10 years.

A dazzling red, dark, rich and exuberant, this wine reveals layers of peppery plum, black cherry and blueberry flavors that turn lush, with smooth tannins. Great example of its type. Drink now through 2008.
