Nez de cassis, légèrement épicé, relish. En bouche, plein de fruit confituré, tannins serrés, boisé fin, alcool pas trop présent. Très long en bouche. Non carafé pour suivre l'évolution du vin jusqu'au lendemain où il est encore aussi bon sinon meilleur. Un exemple que la Petite Syrah peut être magnifique lorsqu'entre bonnes mains.
Wine was purchased upon release and aged in ideal conditions. It was showing incredibly well tonight. On the nose, it has a hint of the grapey smell of Petite Sirah and so much more. On the mouth a bit of acidity, high concentration, good complexity. At its peak now. While it is a big wine, the balance was quite good and the alcohol did not stand out at all.
The wine looks Garnet colored. The legs are Medium. It smells like Blackberry, Prune, Plum, Clove, and Almond. It tastes like Mineral, Apricot, Peach, and Blackberry. The body is Full. The wine has Round texture. The wine finishes Medium. A great petite Syrah from stags leap ready to drink!
Needed to decant for about an hour. Still opened slowly after....Dark Cherry and Plum notes. A little tannic and dry but nice finish. Might be a year away from the next level, but a decent Petite Syrah from Stag's.
