(75% petite sirah with 20% syrah and 5% viognier): Saturated ruby-blue. Blue fruits and bitter chocolate on the nose, plus citrus blossom and peach nuances from the viognier. Large-scaled and broad but with terrific floral lift for petite sirah. The orange peel, cardamom and coriander notes give surprising definition to this very dense, sweet wine. Finishes very long and pure, with serious tongue-dusting tannins but also enticing early sweetness. These 2009s offer compelling aromatic complexity.Author: Stephen Tanzer
