  • Opened for one hour and then decanted. Dark cherries and some spice.
    Dark in color, really a soft smooth tasting wine. Still have one left, hurray.

  • Laying down for 3 years has certainly improved this wine. I decanted almost 2 hours before pouring a glass, but could smell the sour cherry, plum aromas the whole time it sat on the table. Same dark, inky color as before, tannins are smooth, but there's still some heat through the mid-palate. Cherry, blackberry and white pepper... a slight spice. Actually, quite enjoyable, pity its my last one.

  • Seems like a wine that could've been $30 and made me cranky to have coughed it up. Pretty magenta, but not too dense. I was intrigued by the smell, even though there was quite a bit of alcohol - also had some nice red cherry, blueberry and a little chocolate. The first sip was troubling though - mostly alcohol and tannins - not much flavor and an uninspiring finish. Dumped into the decanter for and hour - didnt change too much, but did lose some of the alcohol in the nose and grew a little softer. Reminded me a little of one of the more sweet Ojai Syrahs, just not as good.

  • Okay wine - nothing spectacular - but when you pay this amount....

    kinda sad that "californias first Petite" can only be referenced to who made it, not quality.

  • Big, ripe estery syrah-like nose of sweet cherry with some cocoa and raisin. Big in the mouth with ripe cherry and blackberry, toast, black pepper, and lots of chewy tannins. Maybe a bit hollow on the midpalate. Could easily go a few more years. I don't love it, but it's good QPR for the style.
