Pedroncelli Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley 2005
“Opaque purple in the glass. Rich with ripe blackberry, black pepper and chocolate flavors. Very deep and complex, this wine should be opened and decanted if enjoyed before 2010. Expect this wine to take on complexities for the next 8-12 years. This wine will age well for at least 15 years--it has the structure to evolve nicely.”
Real funky, dirty barnyard nose. Sweet fruits (plums, cherry) evolve into a bitter, tannic finish. I found the wine to be a bit disjointed for my taste.
