The 2017 Petite Sirah is vibrant and expressive with a cornucopia of blackberry, blueberry and black cherry fruits interwoven with floral musky notes of violet and jasmine, alongside more savory herbal notes of white pepper, earthy loam and crushed rock mineral notes. On the palate, juicy flavors of creamy cassis, macerated blackberry, cherry kirsch, black licorice and peppery plum envelope the rich, saturated mouthfeel, followed by a subtle black gunpowder tea, allspice and black pepper note from the oak ageing integrates seamlessly. This wine is intense and robust with velvety tannins and a generous lengthy finish, with acidity supporting throughout, encouraging you to enjoy it now, but has the depth and complexity to age for many years to come.

"A solid red with deep berry, dark-chocolate and hazelnut character. Some clove and mahogany, too. It's full-bodied, dense and chewy with very polished, layered tannins. I like the energy and focus to this petite sirah. One of the best I have ever had. 125th Anniversary bottling. Only in magnum. Real old-vine character. Drink or hold."

The 2018 Petite Sirah is a wine of remarkable fruit purity and character. Inky dark fruit, lavender, spice, mint and blueberry jam are some of the many nuances that flesh out in the glass. The flavors are really popping today. This is what Petite Sirah in Napa Valley is all about.
