A massive wine with incredible concentration and depth of flavor. Wild berry fruits are intermixed with blueberry liqueur and a hint of charred meat and espresso. Rich and opulent on the palate supported by dense tannin structure and bright, natural acidity. – Bob Foley, Winemaker

The fabulous, opaque purple-colored 2012 Petite Sirah Peterson Family Vineyard boasts beautiful blueberry, blackberry and black currant fruit notes intertwined with notions of camphor, spring flowers, spice and oak. Full bodied, opulent, fleshy and super-concentrated, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish, this sensational red can be drunk now, because of its approachability, and over the next 20-25 years. – Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com #215, October 2014, Rating 94 points
