(From 2013 Vintage) Dark purple stains the glass, a perfect showcase for the fruits in this intense red wine. Inky and succulent blueberries and blackberries overwhelm the palate, while a touch of roasted, savory and earthy tones round out the mouthfeel. Supple and spicy, this full bodied wine was aged in American oak for 14 months. Toasty vanilla on the finish combines with chalky and chewy tannins to create a finish with structure and character
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.
Bright fruit on the nose, round and robust tannins and fruit, with a slow, clean finish. Just the slightest peppery bite on the end.
best room temp and breathes for a bit Light Dry
Probably only good because it's a merlot.
A clear not-to-dry Pinot noir
Nice and smooth fruit fwd
My go-to all time fave!!
