The timing was right with this wine, but the flavors were simply not what I wanted, or was recalling from Aglianicos I drank in Italy. Disappointing.

Still very big and fruity -- could have stayed in the cellar a few more years, easily.

Decanted an hour beforehand. Quite tasty, and went quite nicely with a turkey dinner at Thanksgiving, but not noteworthily so.

Rich and chewy, and it could still have stayed in the cellar a while longer. Great with BBQ steak.

2007 Carol Shelton Wines Petite Sirah Rockpile Reserve Rockpile Vineyard

more

7/6/2011 - Three-Star Dave wrote: 88 points

Good, but probably a bit over-priced. A pleasantly tasty petite sirah, with enough depth to overcome the usual tannin-bomb of that grape, but with still only so far it can go before fading away. I'd drink more, but not at that price.

Smooth and spicy, with enough body to stand up to steak and potatoes but not so much that it couldn't be just sipped on its own. One of our favorites.

Decanted for a short time, mostly to filter the soaked cork. Slightly hot still, but a lovely flavor. Worthy wine for a worthy occasion.
