(From 2012 Vintage) Petite Sirah is always rich and concentrated, but the 2012 takes these characteristics to a whole new level. Inky and muscular, the fruits of intense blueberry and dark Marion berry hold court in the glass. Leaving little room for much else, the full bodied mouthfeel envelopes the senses, leaving a powerful impression. The wine finishes with brawny tannins, softened only just slightly by notes of freshly baked blueberry pie: warm fruit compote, vanilla, nutmeg and the desire to take another sip.
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.
smooth finish. great wine for the price.
Very dry, but smooth and not vinegary.
very good. better than 2008
drank with plantain ckn
firm acid but weak fruit
not oak flavored, soft
Good - on tart side.
