When I think about aged wines, I think Bordeaux, Burgundy or maybe a Napa Cab.. but Sonoma Petite Sirah? Not so much...
...but then we tasted these here, and wowza... what a trip. The fruit is still showing nicely in all 3. In the '97, the fruit was surprisingly still in the front seat.. in the '98 and '96, secondary characteristics were sharing the spotlight with the fruit. Others in the office favored the '97 for the strength of the fruit, but I liked the '96 best for it's complexity... leather, a hint of bitter chocolate, earthiness.. all sorts of stuff.
If you're a Petite Sirah fan, or if you enjoy unique tasting experiences, jump on board... you'll enjoy this one. Limited supplies, get 'em here or at the winery, but get 'em while you can,
