Truly classic Petite Sirah.  Its impenetrable black color suggests an opulent, beautiful monster of a wine.  And that it is, but not without offering some transcendent nuance.  The nose opens with intense black plum, olives, tar and brandied cherry.  Silky on entry boasting palate-coating layers of ripe blackberry, sassafras, peppercorn and quince paste.  Well-integrated oak tones and sensible alcohol make for an impeccably balanced expression of an oft overwrought varietal.  This wine is begging to be cozied up with you by a roaring fire, pork rillette and crusty bread.  Cellar-worthy, 10+ years easily.
