Deep nose has nice notes of crushed currants, spice, tree bark, red currants, earth, clay, and subtle medicinal/menthol tones with a hint of curing tobacco. Big and bright in the mouth with the depth and richness that PS can deliver yet very little fat or flash. This is deep and plush with muscular fruit and ripe tannins. There’s a floral almost rose like note in the mouth with lots of earthy spice framing the black currant and mulberry fruit. Really well balanced particularly since the simplicity and rusticity of PS has not been entirely finessed away. Lovely freshness with a nice licorice/menthol medicinal tone and plenty of milk chocolate notes on the moderately long finish. Embryonic but super stuff even now. 94pts Wine of the night!

It's hard to imagine a more enjoyable wine experience. Sweet and spicy with chocolate and a huge range of dark fruits. Something different at every sip.

    Winemaker Notes: Our 2005 Petite Sirah has been a true crowd pleaser, original and tantilizing. A lot more approachable on your palate than the stereotypical petite sirah. Our 2005 Petite Sirah is fruit forward and luscious, yet has the backbone a petite
