Monthly WTF wine night with a theme of “something to impress”. As always, wines were tasted blind.

Love this producer’s petite sirahs. Didn’t know they made this wine. Viscous. Baked mixed berry pie, cherry liqueur, nutmeg, milk chocolate covered black cherries and a mix of red and black licorice.

Old Vines Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2015

This was my favorite after trying this blind against some great turley petites. So drinkable now but has the stuffing to age. Balanced with good fruit, acid, tannin. 93-94 — 17 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2015

Of the handful of Geyserville vintages I have had, back to 03, this is my favorite. I decanted for 2.5 hours, and it continued to evolve over a couple of hours. This deserves more time in the cellar, but whatever. Dark, brambly black and red fruit, black licorice, white pepper, baking spices, & clove on the nose (with none of the meaty, soy sauce flavors the 2015 Pagani Ranch had recently). The oak is there for sure but it suits the wine. Explosively flavorful... I look forward to seeing how this taste in the future. Great Father’s Day bottle! — 8 days ago

I was at a ridge dinner tonight where they served a couple of vintages of the geyserville with the duck dish. I am not a Zinfandel lover by any means but this wine showed well. Probably because it was a blend. Interesting.

Plungerhead Lodi Petite Sirah

Dark, brooding, a bit smokey. Good value for a petite Syrah . A bit harsh on the finish with some vegetal bitterness but overall a good find if you want something different. — 6 days ago

Four Vines

The Heretic Petite Sirah 2010

Not a wine I would expect to buy, only purchase because because of reviews noting surprising “cool climate characteristics” that intrigued me (and a risk-friendly auction price). I was still surprised and very very impressed.
A deep core of Classic black plum - brighter, redder fruits revealed with air - in what is still a very primary wine.
(Apparently) Cooler climate notes of bay leaf are dominant along with some eucalyptus. In the background some nice leather and spice notes, though more red pepper and hot sauce than the black pepper notes I get from more high octane wines. One of those interesting wines that offers something’s little different with each sip, showing more florality and freshnesss at times, others it veered more fresh blueberry, some a bit of smoke and leather, and still others show a very woodsy side of eucalyptus tree. Still very much a full bodied wine with a full mouthfeel and continues to hold big chewy tannins, but is the rare Paso Robles wine (for me) with suffices acidity to create some really good tension and energy. Surprisingly great lengthleaving the palate energized and morphing with some espresso and bitter amaro elements coming in. Simply fantastic as a grilled steak wine. And honestly I think this guy has many years of development to go.

Voluptas

Calpella Ranch Petit Syrah 2010

@Delectable Wine this is the Petit Syrah from Voluptas Calpella Ranch. It was not in the database.

Drinking at prime today! This was a dark and inky pour. Served pop and pour. Black and purple fruit on the nose. Powerful and dark. Had a baking spice to the nose as well. Entry is dark and dense. Sweet black and even a touch of brambly orchard fruit. Middle has more baking spice and baked plums and figs. Finishes with intense mouth coating fruit and still quite a bit of tannic influence. Grapes sourced from Mendocino. Full bodiedz, full throttle, and right at optimal drinking. Wow.
