Opaque purple. Black and blue fruit liqueur, potpourri and cured meat on the nose, with a peppery quality adding lift. Expansive raspberry and bitter cherry flavors put on weight with air, picking up a subtle licorice pastille quality and a touch of smokiness. The meaty nuance repeats on the finish, which is framed by chewy, slow-building tannins. Distinctly Old World in its funky style, which means that it will have both fans and detractors.

Even better is the more limited production 2012 Petite Sirah Estate Old Vines from their estate in Paso Robles. This meaty wine, which spent 15 months in wood, offers black and red currants, pepper and incense in an attractive, medium to full-bodied, lush style to drink over the next 4-5 years. 87+ Points
