(From 2011 Vintage) Showcasing trademark characteristics, the wine is impressively inky, dark and luscious in the glass. Supple fruits, including wild blackberry and Oregon blueberry, are distinct both in the aromatics and on first sip. Concentrated and rich, savory notes of toasty oak combine with mocha and hints of salted caramel. The finish, firm and full bodied, lingers and lasts as only Petite Sirah can.
Amazing nose on this. Big fruit aroma. Lots of tannins, well balanced with the fruit in the flavor. blackberry, currents, mulberry. yum!
Dark berry aromas and deep garnet colors. A little young and fruity tasting though. liked the other vintages better
interesting blend. a lot of chocolate and spices on the palate. overall a good wine... not necessarily my style.
oak bomb almost overwhelms hints of tobacco. when well chilled more subtle oak and more fruit forward.
For the price point (at Costco), this bottle is incredible.
like this combination, will drink again, very smooth
ruby rich luscious berry smooth spice background.
