($38) Saturated ruby to the rim. Knockout nose combines crushed berries, pepper and roasted meat, all lifted by an exotic whiff of peach pit. Penetrating acidity gives this a youthful toughness today, with the dark berry liqueur flavors perked up by captivating white fruit notes (no doubt due to a bit of viognier in the blend). The rather powerful tannins call for several years of aging. This splendid petite sirah (spelled "syrah" on the label) may ultimately merit an even higher score but it's tough going today.
