This is a great #wine in so many ways. Color is very well balanced and gradient shows Harmony throughout the glass. Glowing color and polished sheen. Slight perfume, elegance and soft lavender aromas with a hint of passion fruit or fuzzy fruit.

The palate is incredibly soft and pillowy. The tannins are amazing for 2013
#PetiteSirah. Whether it be 4% Viognier, or over sized oak barrels, it has amazing texture. The plush, grapey, soft berries, gentle tannin and mild acidity make the wine. Opened 12/18/15

Forceful in it's youth, yet remains some of the best Petite Sirah I've tasted.

Plush, smooth and a bit of blackberry jam. Big wine. Nothing subtle about it. Very enjoyable on its own. Beautiful color.

Rich ripe fruit. A big wine full of dark fruit flavors but considering ripeness has balance.

High expectations for the price. Big and inky as anticipated. Decanted 1+ hour and not vastly different. Big berry fruit in foreground, oak presence. Overall soft and velvety. Would love to try with more age.

2013. Gobs of ripe blackberry fruit. Big and bold wine with large tannins that coat the gums. A real powerhouse that is hedonistic now but could probably use 5 years. 76%Petite Sirah. Tasted at 750 Wines in St Helena.
