Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim. Not showing much age.
Nose of black currants, black plums, raisins, dried figs, vanilla, cedar, cola, coffee, spices, chocolates, earth, vegetables, herbs, eucalyptus, turmeric, peppercorn, celery, graphite and alcohol. What a wonderful nose.
Medium plus in body with high acidity and fat legs.
Sweet on the palate with nice balance and nice length on the finish.
This 13 year old sweet wine from Napa Valley is drinking so beautifully right now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
Showing great complexity at this point, with lots of chocolate and coffee notes, intertwined with spices and earth notes.
Thank you Mike for sharing this with me.

Took a little while to open up but after all it is a PS. Still going strong after 17 years. Tannins and fruits still balanced. Impressive￼ — 9 days ago
Color is still a deep ruby/garnet with a nose of plums, black tea, black pepper, and hints of dark chocolate. Amazingly smooth, this Petite Sirah has developed nicely over 13 years. Fruit is still there, but florals are popping out and the texture is wonderful. Full-bodied, bold, powerful wine given to me by a friend. Paired with prime NY strip and ribeye = perfection. — 17 days ago

Big but elegant Red. Deep purple color. Mostly Petite Syrah but also includes Syrah (12%), Grenache (8%), Carignan (2%) and Viognier (1%). Generous aromas of red and black fruit, tar and purple flowers. Cooked red, blue and black fruit flavors with hints of black licorice, tobacco and vanilla. Hint of black pepper on the finish. Tannins have really mellowed. Bold but also restrained. Nice balance. Thank You John P. — 3 days ago
