Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

(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.

Smooth, delicious and complex. Components of black cherry, cranberry and subtle earth notes. The layers of aromas and fl avors range from rose petals and black cherry to cranberry, mushroom and earthiness with hints of smoke, peppery toast and orange peel woven in.
