Great vintages lift all boats?in the right hands, even the most humble wines get a boost. The 2013 vintage was strong across California, delivering ripe, complex tannins for reds, and Joel Peterson's petite sirah is in fine form, bold but not hot or leathery, lasting on a chewy fruit-skin texture that releases scents of cassis and peppercorn spice in the finish. Keep this on hand for pan-seared steak. Highly Recommended. Score - 88. (wineandspiritsmagazine.com, Feb. 2016)
Violet, plum and chocolate on the nose. Candied apple and dark cherry on the palate.
Ready to enjoy now or age for later, it's packed with powerfully concentrated black fruit, cherry, plum, and chocolate flavors - proving this wine is the grande dame of the group.
