Smoky cab franc nose. Deep rich flavors of stewed plums and black and blueberries. Deep, rich and intense with a bit of Grandma's jam woven through. Very nice and for the price, a good everyday wine to try something different than the usual.

This is a nice full body red with some flavorful fruit. Decant or use a Vinturi aerator or similar. A great value wine. Not for the faint of heart (2008). 89- 90pts

The color of the 2008 Petite Sirah is of concentrated purple, with a youthful bright hue. The nose of the wine is full of ripe Blackberry, Boysenberry aromas, which are accompanied by Mocha and hints of brown sugar. The berry aromas of the nose are also evident in the flavor, when the rich, full bodied wine enters the mouth. Notes of milk chocolate and anise linger, long after swallowing.

Lovely, complex flavors of blackberries sprinkled with pepper, balsamic and vanilla, and gentle, lush tannins. Fully dry, but too soft to score higher.

The 2003 Petite Sirah's dense ruby/purple color is followed by brooding notes of earth, black fruits,. and spice, a good palate texture, and fresh acidity. While there is little depth or finish, Petite Sirah's classic peppery, black fruit character is well-displayed. Even though it is superficial, it is well made and ideal for drinking over the next 2-3 years.

Ultra-dry, tannic, full-bodied, strong and red, this country-style wine is something yoursquo;d drink with barbecued ribs. The flavors of blackberries and coffee are enriched by some oak.

Just like blueberry jam. Itrsquo;s incredibly supple and lively for a Petite, with ripe tannins, a decent complexity and notes of spicy oak and licorice. Drink now.

Heavy on the cola, spice and cedar notes, with ripe dark fruit flavors on a medium body. The chunky tannins are just what yoursquo;d expect from a Petite. Drink now through 2014.
