    The black ruby/purple-hued, backward, intense 2004 Petite Sirah Rutherford exhibits notes of pen ink, graphite, white flowers, black raspberries, and incense. It may be even better with 5-10 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20 plus years.

Ray and Nancy Coursen founded Elyse Winery in 1987 with their first production of Morisoli Vineyard Zinfandel. They continued to purchase grapes until 1997 when they bought a small winery on Hoffman Lane. After initially focusing on Zinfandel, the winery expanded into Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah and more recently Coursen has made small quantities of Chardonnay, a Cal-Ital blend called Nero Misto, a Chenin Blanc, Rose, and a Grenache called Le Corbeau. The winery has two labels, Elyse and Jacob Franklin, named after their children. The Jacob Franklin label was started in 1998, featuring a low-yield Petite Sirah, a Bordeaux blend called #60 Mon Chou and a Hoffman Lane Cabernet.
