Deep blue & black berry notes, pepper & vanilla spice; very lush & palate saturating. 93pts.
Undecanted from a preservation machine. Once again wonderful, round, velvety, lovely, strong sour deep rich berry fruit (blueberries, blackberry, perhaps other) with a hint of volatiles and some "brushland". Very nicely balanced and well-integrated. Nose featured sour fruit and meaty notes and "wet metal". Finishes similar to taste. Having forgotten my eval of this wine in March, I again gave it a 91, without decanting this time. Drink now.
Dark, almost black, and delicious. A tame petit sirah, round, smooth, big not harsh, features dry rich ripe berries and cherries in the mouth with a patina of frosted cookie, cinnamon, and pepper. Aroma of vanilla, floral, spice, and a slight burnt odor. Medium body. Finishes over four seconds or so with sweet dry red fruit plus a bit of leather and oil.
External Reviews for Marietta Cellars Petite Sirah California
Almost opaque in color, the 2006 Petite Sirah exhibits a broad, rich nose of blueberries, sweet toasty oak, and mineral notes. It is abundantly lush, mouth-filling, and weighty on the palate. Typical of the vintage, it exhibits broad, fruit-forward flavors with pleasing fruit tannins.
