This Petite Sirah from Lodi is always enjoyable. Big and bold, spicy and tangy.

Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins.

Showing black fruits, chocolates, coffee, wood, vanilla, licorice, mocha, caramel and peppercorn.

Full bodied with a nice finish. Might be a little sweet for some.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Bold jammy red fruits, bark, dark chocolate, vanilla, moss. Hot with chewy tannins. Light tobacco and some noticeable espresso.

Majorly extracted, big wine. All black fruit, vanilla, dried herbs and spice. Soft, easy tannins make it drinkable on its own (For you, Cab lovers!). Needs game meats (Herb & pepper venison with black fruit reduction) to pair with. Or skirt steak. Or a good cigar. A real glass/teeth stainer.

Now this is a great wine. Dark in color, almost black with a purple rim.
Magnificent nose with blueberries, figs, plums, and herbs.
Sweet candies on the palate with blueberries, cranberry, dried figs, raisins, peppercorn.
Big, bold and beautiful with gorgeous legs.
Smooth and sexy long finish with bold tannins and ripen fruits.
Great right out of the bottle. After 2 hours in the decanter, chewy tannins on the finish. This is not my first, and definitely not my last. Very consistent from year to year.

Up to this point I've been exclusively a white wine drinker, but this is the wine that changed all that. Light on the tannins, heavy on the jam. A new favorite and gateway to other reds.

Very dark, not much fruit, leather, smoke, too oaked for my palate.
