    December 24, 2014 - Dark, rich, ink colored. Still pretty tight tannin structure. Strong blackberry, some anise, smokey finish. Drinking well. Probably should have decanted.

    September 26, 2014 - Dark burgundy in the glass with a red rim and long legs. Rich and full bodied. Thick nose of tobacco and leather. Layers of deep tannic complexity and a dry finish.

    January 12, 2014 - Day 1: A tannic beast. Lot's of flavor, but the tannins are just too much for me as they block out any subtlety or complexity. Day 2: a third of the bottle corked and left on kitchen countertop. Tannins have been tamed and the wine is much more balanced and enjoyable. My one and only bottle, but if I had more I'd leave them alone for 2-3 years

    November 28, 2013 - Lovely, seductive wine. Very dark color, strong blackberry element in the nose. Quite fragrant. Brambles and spice on the palate; dark fruit on the attack, with some earthy notes on the finish. Just a textboook Petite Sirah, only lacking a bit of depth and lushness on the finish to merit a higher score. But make no mistake - this is good stuff. A bit pricey, but worth it. Highly recommended, and would buy again. Will hold and possibly improve for another five years.

    July 8, 2013 - coming around very nicely from 2 years ago, when I doubted it could be as good as the 2005. Now it's right on par!
