lighter purple then a typical petite sirah, but it is a 2006. Menthol and a savory aroma. Cedar and game on mouth soft tannins

Good and very cherry but not as much as some other younger wines. Not sure if I like this more than the other higher end petite sirahs of theirs.

Very good — better than the regular label but you can see similarities. Deep and fruity but drinkable. Will be interesting to try after aging a bit mor.

Eucalyptus almost medicinal on the nose. Tons of fruit and structure on the palate. The tannins could benefit from a little softening, but this is in range. Drink in the next 1-3 years.

Excellent. Aged nicely. Not as much cherry as their younger vintages. Deep and earthy with a brightness. Definitely would get again.
