    July 7, 2018 - This wine's vibrancy starts with its inky, electric purple color. After just an hour, it opened up and continued to do so, adding complexity and bite to its profile. Rich leather dominates over the fruit.

    June 2, 2016 - This is still a beast! 93+ this should get better.

    December 27, 2014 - Deep blueberry, on nose and palette, herbal, tobacco, smell. Medium finish. Tannins still strong after 5 hrs open

    December 9, 2014 - 12 year old wine or two year old wine? It's hard to tell.this stuff is dark purple, and shows tons of black fruit. There is still matching tannin, so no hurry to drink these if you have them. Certainly gives me reason to bury my 2010 and 2011 Lytton Estate PS bottles.

    October 12, 2012 - with venison pie. no idea where or when i got this bottle. it was fantastic, just how petite sirah should taste. gorgeous color, great elegant nose. all dark fruit and very fresh. probably at the top of its lifecycle, no reason to try and let it get better. it has aged beautifully and this should have 7-10 yrs on it. after about two hours it really opened up and got more complex. Should have decanted. Great wine all around.
