50/50 Syrah & Petite Syrah blend.

Color, it's so purple and dark! Reminds me of Heitz 'Ink Grade' Port.

Nose has ripe, crushed blueberry and blackberry, light creamy oak, cut plum, prune and just a touch of baking spice.

Palate has blueberry juice with acidity subdued by mellow oak, crushed blackberry, black currant, faint cedar plank, moist-tanned leather and light black pepper.

After ~3hr decant we still had trailing heat from the alcohol (15.2% ABV), but it disapated in another hour or so. A great paring with some local Delmonico steaks on the grill, cooked to a beautiful 130°F.
When good protein is served at our house eight paws will be in waiting on our dining table. My wife and I only take two of our six chairs, others will have one hungry 🐈 each. We all enjoyed a great meal tonight, some albeit some with much smaller portions.

This is the youngest version of this bottle in our cellar, the 2010 can easily reach 2023-25.

Better known for their Zin, the Biale Petite Sirah is also excellent. Beautiful deep purple color. Spice and tobacco noise.
