Wine Advocate Review
Inky purple-black in color, the 2017 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard gives up pretty blue flowers and blueberry candy notes to begin, with loads of exotic spice over bramble berry preserves and baked blackberries. Full and absolutely luscious on the palate, it fills the mouth with spicy fruit layers, with firm but approachable tannins and good freshness, finishing very long. Yum! Drink date 2020-2030.
The Petite Sirah maintains darkness, power, and purity of fruit. The cool vineyard site led to long hang time, giving us full development of flavors and ripe phenolics. Inky-purple in color, this wine is generous with dark berry fruits, licorice and jammy intensity. This Petite Sirah should age for some time. However, ample primary fruit and silky tannins allow for early enjoyment.
