About

91-94

"Another monster in the making is the 2015 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard (15.7% alcohol, 580 cases). This is no ordinary Petite Sirah, but then, few are. Nearly black as a moonless night, the wine’s aromatics soar from the glass, offering up floral notes intermixed with blackberry, incense, blueberry liqueur, graphite and licorice. Huge intensity of flavor, sweet but noticeable tannins, low acidity, but fabulous richness, and a broad, almost endless finish characterize this Petite Sirah that should age well for 30-50 or more years."

91-94 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"The 2015 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard is quite powerful and intense, with good balance of fruit, acidity and tannin. The flavor profile is distinctly red-toned, which is unusual for this site, where the wines have typically been darker and more brooding. At the same time, the tannins are remarkably civilized for young Petite. "

Product Description:

"Another stunning Palisades Petite Sirah. Our first block was picked on August 31st while the second block was picked on September 10th. Both lots were fully destemmed, cold-soaked for five days, and given very long macerations (50 and 40 days respectively) to soften the tannins. Twenty-nine percent new French oak to further round the palate. Bottled unfined and unfiltered." -Winery
