Floral, slightly saline, great acid, grapefruit, and more full bodied. Very enjoyable, and an excellent wine with food. — 11 days ago
Muddy truck tire. Baked blueberries and blackberries. Green peppercorn. Opaque almost black in the middle with a mm of dried blood red at the edge. Dirty. Huge. Full bodied. The densest 2011 I've had. low acid, really high alc (16.1%!). Extracted, astringent and tannic. A little Brett and a little VA. Note: I tasted with 5 other professionals and none of them came close to liking it. The in-your-face and rustic-ness gives the wine an unmistakable charm. — 9 days ago

This is a delicious Petite Sirah from Lodi California. Well balanced and fruit forward with nice complexity. Showing a soft and smooth mouthfeel that I did not expect from a Petite Sirah at this age.
An easy drinking, bold and jammy red wine, with high alcohol, so watch out...
Better after 30 minutes in a decanter.
This is a good sipping wine, all by itself or with food. I paired it with Gouda cheese which went perfect together.
Grapes are hand-picked. Aged in American Oak barrels for 10 months.
