Outstanding. Lush dark, purple, and black fruits, silky tannin, super jammy notes. Very well balanced. Beautiful nose, packed with jammy fruits and touch of florality. Wonderfully restrained given its a Petite Sirah. Zero after burn. Inky notes do not descend into tar. Refined. Enjoyable straight out of the bottle. Everything feels seamlessly integrated. Persistent flavor across the palate. More-ish finish that keeps me drinking it over and over. Absolutely amazing for the sub $16 price I'm paying for it. In fact, just a straight up great wine, regardless of price.
Only criticism could be it may be accused of being too restrained for its varietal. But I am not complaining.
This is the wild and beautiful black stallion that beauty tamed where strength failed.
