Great showing for this wine. One of the best Petite Sirah vineyards! This is inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with boysenberries, gravel, violets and spice. Full bodied. Lots of energy. This is big but not over the top (especially for Petite). Lots of black raspberry fruit over a gravelly bed. Some peppery notes too. Medium tannins. Long finish. This should continue to evolve for another five to seven years and drink well for ten after that. It is also delicious today. Drinks great on its own, this will work with roasted veggies or meats.
