Issue: Issue 132
($44) Bright ruby color. Knockout nose combines black fruits, smoke, licorice, pepper and a strong rocky character. Quite suave on entry, then thick but vibrant in the middle, with powerful, well- integrated acidity accentuating the impression of intensity. A very tactile, concentrated petite sirah with terrific inner-palate energy. Finishes savory, chewy and very long. Impressive.

Although pinched with screeching tannins, the backward, unevolved 2005 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge will repay those who have the foresight to lay it away for 10-15 years. It is loaded with potential, but is nearly impenetrable at present.
Fragrant white pepper and wild berry aromas are delightfully bright, with a juicy crunch amid the tight tannins. Spice, cedar and blackberry flavors stick around on the tannic finish. -MW
