This wine is robust in flavor, appropriately laced with firm tannins, and begs a dry-aged T-bone to pair with. It has a deep color, moderately spicy blackberry aromas, and a firm mouthfeel. Blackberry and subtle blueberry flavors push through on the finish.

This wine, aged in 33% new French barrels, shows the grape variety in all its deep, dark and tannic glory. An inky color, black pepper aromas and deep blueberry and blackberry flavors are backed by a firm texture that will pair nicely with wild boar, venison or a hamburger. JIM GORDON

Dark and brooding, this Petite Sirah seems years from peak expression, despite showing plenty of character now. It leads with subtle scents of olive and carob, game and black plum, all delivered with a kind of blunt richness that becomes more defined as the wine opens over the course of several days —P.J.C.
