Drinking window: Drink between 2012 and 2019 (based on 3 user opinions) Community Tasting Notes (average 91.3 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 15 notes) - hiding notes with no text Tasted by noahbw on 10/5/2012 & rated 91 points: 3 hours in decanter. Thick dark purple in the glass. Nose or dark ripe fruit, smokey black pepper, leather, spices, caramelized sugar, dusty wood, branches and bark. Palate is broad yet full of concentrated black berry and pronounced tannin that sings. Jammy notes give way to chocolate and an earthy, herbal and concentrated fruit finish that lingers so nicely. PJG: 91 (234 views) Tasted by jspostles on 8/31/2012 & rated 93 points: Really nice petite...popped and poured - 30 minutes later: voila! (450 views) Tasted by cbbrown3 on 8/24/2012 & rated 91 points: This was decanted for about an hour. The wine is a deep, dark purple color. There are blackberries, black pepper, smoke, licorice, dark chocolate, dried herbs, underbrush, and some earthiness on the dark and pleasing nose. This is medium to full body with fairly solid, ripe tannins and very nice acidity. There is a lot of fruit and spice on the palate with just a bit of earthiness coming in on the back end with dark chocolate and black pepper. Nice length on the finish where the dark chocolate really kicks into high gear. This is very young but already very nice. (542 views) Tasted by Ceo on 5/31/2012 & rated 94 points: This wine is showing well after a venturi and decant. It is young but it will be even better in a few years. Hard to beat Girard P.S.!!

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Petite Sirah is an inky, dark, fruit-forward wine with aromas of baked cherry pie, ripe plum, marzipan, anise and allspice. On the palate it offers a wonderful balance of integrated, firm tannins and crisp acidity with a soft, spicy and lingering finish.
