2005 corte riva petite sirah
"The enormously-endowed 2005 Petite Sirah reveals an opaque blue/purple color, a stunning bouquet of acacia flowers, incense, blueberries, and black raspberries, and a powerful, rich, super-concentrated style. Forget this beauty for 4-5 years, and enjoy it over the following two decades. Pride Mountain Vineyard's well-known viticulturist, Romel Rivera, produces impressive wines under his own label, Corte Riva. Working closely with winemaker Bob Foley has been to his benefit, and Foley's winemaking philosophy is apparent in these brilliant reds."
