Nearly off the charts in terms of richness the 2004 Petite Sirah Peterson Family Vineyard possesses an extraordinary perfume of violets pepper blueberries blackberries creme de cassis and graphite. Terrific intensity huge body and sweet tannin are found in this profoundly great Petite Sirah. It should age effortlessly for two decades or more.

Bold ripe rich and fleshy. Seductive in its own way showing tiers of wild berry and blackberry with hints of vanilla and spice. Packs in a wallop of fruit yet it's remarkably elegant and polished for its size and variety... Bold ripe rich and fleshy. Seductive in its own way showing tiers of wild berry and blackberry with hints of vanilla and spice. Packs in a wallop of fruit yet it's remarkably elegant and polished for its size and variety. Drink now through 2012. 280 cases made. –JL

The vineyard is source of high-quality fruit but also intense mountain tannins that require time to melt. Under those tannins is dramatically rich black currant and carob fruit flavor easily big enough to sustain 100% new French oak. By 2009 this 100% Cab should begin to soften and sweeten and it will drink beautifully for at least six more years.
