Expected this to be stronger for a petit syrah. Softer than expected, but still nicely done.
Great, long finish
Great texture , rich, long finish.
Very jammy. Great flavorful wine, easy to drink.
Jammy wine here. Playing the game of acid vs. sweetness and oak. Fun BBQ wine, but the VA is up pretty high if you look for it.
very smooth and enjoyable on a Saturday afternoon
Taste is thin, weak and tannic, Fruitty, one dimensional with a quick finish.
External Reviews for Rosenblum Cellars Petite Sirah Contra Costa County Heritage Clones
Rosenblum Cellars is somewhat under the radar for top-class Petite Sirah, but they do a very fine job with it. The black/purple-tinged, broodingly primeval looking 2003 Petite Sirah Heritage Clones is a good value for those who love this wild, ageworthy varietal. It possesses sweet, incense-laden, black currant fruit with spice box, licorice, and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, tannic, and loaded with fruit, this is a long term prospect that needs 2ndash;3 years of bottle age. It should age effortlessly for 15 or more years.
The 2005 Petite Sirah Heritage Clones is a full-bodied, flavorful, mouthfilling wine offering loads of peppery, blackberry, and cherry fruit, surprising density, a supple texture, and beautiful length and richness. This stunner should drink well for 5ndash;8 years or longer.
Inky-purple in the glass; the nose is firm, showing blackberry, black cherry and black plum essence. The palate is packed with rich, jammy dark fruit and blueberry compote accented by big, palate-warming tannins and toasty spice. This wine is like a big overstuffed chair, cozy and loveable, with enough support to keep you begging for more. In a word: delicious.
There are nearly 10,000 cases of the stunning 2004 Petite Sirah Heritage Clone. A dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by glorious aromas of creme de cassis, vanilla, incense, crushed rocks, blackberries, and smoke. It is a full-bodied, tannic, chewy, rich, pedal-to-the-metal effort with low acidity as well as ripe tannin. The latter two components will make it difficult to resist, but it should age well for 15ndash;20 years.
Rich, dark blackberry pie, huckleberry syrup and dark chocolate notes on a medium frame with chewy tannins. Wonderfully effusive berry notes arenrsquo;t weighed down by the tannins. Drink now through 2012.
On the off-dry side of the fence, this zaftig wine has gigantic flavors of blackberry jam, cassis-laced cola, raspberry tart and smoke. Itrsquo;s hot in alcohol, but the heat expresses itself as a white peppery, nutmeggy spice that seasons the fruit.
Black in color and tannic power, this fills all that extract with flavor as rich as fig pudding. Itrsquo;s a meaty wine from 80- to 100-year-old vines, to cellar for a decade, then serve with grilled steak.
