Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) 8% Petite Sirah. A study in contrasts when compared with the winery's Annette's Reserve bottling, this rather ripe, yet slightly dry and desiccated wine shows only half-hearted glimmers of fruit. It begins with the promise of richness, but it runs to a less than likeable finish marked by austere astringency and tightening notes of tinny acidity.
