The black/purple 2007 Petite Sirah may well be around in 50-60 years, when most of us will be pushing up daisies. In fact, it probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years. A massive, pedal-to-the-metal Petite Sirah that looks like pen ink, the wine displays notes of creosote, pepper, spice box, blackberry, and blueberry, with hints of incense and floral undertones. It is dense and almost looks like syrup being poured into a glass. It is obviously not for everybody, as it is certainly a controversial New World wine, but these wines will become more and more civilized as they age, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this one is spoken of with reverence 40-50 years from now. 95+ (RP)
Saturated black-ruby. Crushed blackberry and blueberry aromas are perked up by spices, pepper, violet and flinty minerality, with a smoky element adding complexity. A dense, powerful cocktail of berries with outstanding sweetness and thrust. For such a concentrated wine, this shows uncanny suavity of texture and lift. Finishes with broad, fine-grained tannins and palate-staining length. An exceptional petite sirah: I can see this going on in bottle for 20 years. (ST)
This is a hammer with a red velvet cover. Not sure what to say about t his one. Violets, lilacs, crushed dark fruits, rosemary, and lavender on the nose. Full and very powerful, with big velvety tannins. Soft and luscious, massive yet balanced. Very impressive considering the 16.5% alcohol.
Thick tannins create a mouthfilling experience of dark, concentrated and brambly flavors of wild berry and licorice. There's impressive intensity, with spicy cigar box, mineral, clay, pepper and violet grace notes on the long finish. (MW)
