    February 25, 2017 - Wow. At this age, this is perfect. Smooth nose of earth and unusual things, almost glue-like. Berries of all kinds are the first to hit the taste, followed by some bitters, and finally spice on the end. Slight aftershock, as this is nearly 16% abv. Excellent.

    March 20, 2016 - Petite Sirahs on a Satruday Afternoon (ICASI): Abe's wines can be a crap shoot. This one was successful. Deep purple in color. Black raspberries on the palate. On the palate, this is sweet. A fair amount of RS is left in the wine it seems. It is one of those wines that a little goes a long way. Not sure where I would serve it. Too sweet for table wine and too dry for dessert. In any event, very good on its own. I suppose holding this will reduce the sweetness level. Still drinking quite young.

    March 19, 2016 - Brought to Loretta Pagannini's for PS theme. Showed better than expected. Still lots of acid, tannins and sweet fruit. In top 2 of 15 by group; still has life ahead of it.

    October 5, 2013 - Exceeded my expectations. I don't know what Abe does to this to make Petite Sirah truly taste like an Italian Barolo, but it is spectacular. Firing on all its aromatic, earthy, mushroomy, floral cylinders with enough blackberry to push through to the bright, juicy finish. Lingers in the mouth. Do be aware that, unlike most Nebbiolo, this is 15.8% ABV--approximately the same level as port. Proceed with caution.
