In fact it probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years. A massive pedal-to-the-metal Petite Sirah that looks like pen ink the wine displays notes of creosote pepper spice box blackberry and blueberry with hints of incense and floral undertones. It is dense and almost looks like syrup being poured into a glass. It is obviously not for everybody as it is certainly a controversial New World wine but these wines will become more and more civilized as they age and I wouldn't be surprised if this one is spoken of with reverence 40-50 years from now.

Crushed blackberry and blueberry aromas are perked up by spices pepper violet and flinty minerality with a smoky element adding complexity. A dense powerful cocktail of berries with outstanding sweetness and thrust. For such a concentrated wine this shows uncanny suavity of texture and lift. Finishes with broad fine-grained tannins and palate-staining length. An exceptional petite sirah: I can see this going on in bottle for 20 years.

Thick tannins create a mouthfilling experience of dark concentrated and brambly flavors of wild berry and licorice. There's impressive intensity with spicy cigar box mineral clay pepper and violet grace notes on the long finish. Drink now through 2017. 1100 cases made. -MW
