Wowie zowie! Hands down the finest Petite Sirah we have ever produced. This wine is special. Black as night, the hi-toned aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and flowers explode from the glass. What a sniff! Full-bodied, flavors of blackberry and cassis completely saturate the palate. Plenty of tannin in the long finish but buffered by the copious fruit. Breathtaking! I enjoy Pets young for their power and fruit but this will also age well. Enjoy young with a decant or let it age until 2032. Who knows, it may even make it to 2042!

Wine EnthusiastFor fans of the variety, this is a consistently blockbuster wine, well made and remarkably fruity and floral. Violet aromas ride quietly over rounded flavors of cherry pie as the body takes on full-figured dimension. Richly voluptuous, there's balance here within the firm robust tannin structure and heady licorice-laden end.

Wine AdvocateAnother monster in the making is the 2015 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard (15.7% alcohol, 580 cases). This is no ordinary Petite Sirah, but then, few are. Nearly black as a moonless night, the wine’s aromatics soar from the glass, offering up floral notes intermixed with blackberry, incense, blueberry liqueur, graphite and licorice. Huge intensity of flavor, sweet but noticeable tannins, low acidity, but fabulous richness, and a broad, almost endless finish characterize this Petite Sirah that should age well for 30-50 or more years.

Wine SpectatorDeeply structured and packing some muscle, but wrapped in a rich and supple texture, offering wild berry, cracked pepper and orange zest flavors. Drink now through 2024. 584 cases made.
