big blue and purple berry fruit without being syrupy or fake/vanilla, still a lot of tannin. Delicious and really well made without faults, at the same time nothing really stands out about it. Maybe slightly hot. Better after a few hours of air.
PnP at he end of the evening and nursed a glass over next hour. Starting to get into a nice, mellow place. Most of the baby-fat is gone. Probably has several more years to evolve even further. Very nice wine
This drank great with pizza last night. It shows some of the power of the 07 vintage, but it doesn't get 'big', which is always possible for petite in big years. Plenty of energy here, dark fruit, both working together to provide something really cool. I went looking for some booze in the aroma and it's just not a player either so all together, I liked this bottle for staying pretty complete with room to age longer.
Exuberant berry flavors with mineral and floral undertones. This really reminded me of syrah and was strongly in the red/purple fruit spectrum rather than the blue/black I normally imagine petite sirah to be. The structure lets you know this will last a long time, but it's in great balance at the moment. Delicious.
