An ample dose of (very ripe + very evocative) Anderson Valley fruit & flora: cherry, raspberry, pennyroyal tea, dank forest floor, still vibrant and youthful. This wine is just a bit too hot and heavy (nearly 15% alc) for my tastes. Really exquisite fruit here, but while I like this power and boisterousness in her Petite Sirah, I prefer the volume just a tad lower on my Pinots. Pardon any typos; I am a lightweight and no longer accustomed to these abvs on a Tuesday night!

Wry nice, I liked the slightly edgy taste but my partner was not so fond of it. Got to try the 2013 out of their library, even more interés, just like the volume turned up. — 6 days ago

This smells so incredible I almost don't even want to drink it so much as inhale it all night. Smells like a dark berry tart. Needs a bit of time to open up, but is a nicely balanced wine. — 21 days ago
This is a delicious Petite Sirah from Mendocino County.
Full bodied and very fruity. Big and bold with medium acidity.
Showing blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, chocolates, light earth and peppercorn.
Long finish with grippy tannins and tangy raspberries.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours of airtime.
Still young and would be better in 5 to 7 years, but already delicious.
