The 2007 Petite Sirah is characterized by a deep, inky color
that is so densely hued, it appears almost black in color.
Aromas of black cherry, cigar box, sandalwood, and spice leap
from the glass. A few more swirls reveal a subtle black pepper
and earthy notes. On the palate, the wine is robust and immense
with concentrated flavors of blackberry, mocha, and espresso.
The tannins are firm, but not overpowering, and there is a silky
texture to the wine which plays nicely with the subtle spicy
components and earthy characters. The finish is velvety and
smooth with a long, lingering aftertaste.
