2012 Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Peterson Family Vineyard

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

A 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 - 94 points
