2014 Halcón "Tierra" Yorkville Highlands Petite Sirah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A 100% varietal wine, the 2014 Petite Sirah Tierra comes from the Theopolis vineyard in the Yorkville Highlands (this was previously used by Carlisle and is close to Paul's Halcon site) and was aged in 25% new French oak. It sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific notes of black and blue fruits, tobacco leaf, licorice and chalky minerality. Rich, textured and full-bodied, with beautiful purity of fruit, it has enough texture and richness to shine even today, but I suspect it will evolve for 10-15 years. I continue to love these wines from Pau ...Read More »

2014 Ridge "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate is outstanding. Deep, luscious and intense, but with none of the aggressiveness Petite so often presents, the 2014 is utterly captivating from the very first taste. Dark red and blue-hued stone fruits, mint, spices and licorice are front and center. The purity of the fruit here is simply remarkable. As hard as it may be to believe, the 2014 can be enjoyed on the young side. This is a tremendous wine. Don't miss it! This is an absolutely stellar set of wines from Ridge. (AG)" (6/2016)

2014 Jaffurs "Thompson Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Petite Sirah (Previously $35)

From the producer: "The 2014 Petite Sirah maintains incredible darkness, power, and purity of fruit. Petite Sirah likes to get ripe, and 2014 was a consistently warm and sunny vintage. It has gobs of dark cherry and black fruit flavors, spice and licorice aromas. Approachable as a young wine, it will also reward additional cellaring."

2013 Joseph Swan "Bastoni Vineyard" Russian River Valley Petite Sirah

From the producer: "This wine is as dark as our tannat, which is saying a lot! Deep, deep red. Although the nose is not fully developed as of yet, it is about black plum and, even though it was aged in neutral French oak barrels, a hint of wood. In the mouth it’s power is obvious but at the same time it exhibits balance and even a bit of elegance. Sort of like a middle linebacker doing ballet. It is a bit juicy but with a tannic edge and great acidity. Knowing what I do about how many petite sirahs tend to age, we plan to put several cases in the librar... Read More »

2013 Halcón "Tierra" Yorkville Highlands Petite Sirah

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the cool-climate Theopolis Vineyard in the Yorkville Highlands, the 2013 Petite Sirah Tierra is a blend 100% Petite Sirah that was aged in 25% new oak barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Its inky purple color is followed by lots of black and blue fruits, violet, pepper, graphite and hints of underbrush on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, supple, pure and polished, it's a beautifully civilized, if not elegant, expression of Petite Sirah that will have 10-15 years of longevity.

This wine spent 16 months in 100% new French oak prior to being bottled. It is a powerhouse at 15.5% natural alcohol.

1996 Turley "Aida" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

92-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Turley continues to offer two of the blackest, densest, richest Petite Syrahs ever produced in California. Alongside its siblings, the 1996 Petite Syrah Aida Vineyard looks like a wimp with only 13.8% alcohol, but what concentration and intensity this wine offers. From a 4.5-acre vineyard, only 3 tons of fruit were harvested in 1996. The result is an opaque purple-colored wine with a dense, mineral, earthy, peppery, blackberry-scented nose, huge, ripe, thick flavors, gobs of glycerin and fruit, and a long, moderately tannic finish. My guess is that this ...Read More »

2005 Turley "Rattlesnake Ridge" Howell Mountain Petite Syrah

Wine Spectator: "Fragrant white pepper and wild berry aromas are delightfully bright, with a juicy crunch amid the tight tannins. Spice, cedar and blackberry flavors stick around on the tannic finish. (MW)" (2/2008) K&L Notes: 93 points Stephen Tanzer: "Bright ruby color. Knockout nose combines black fruits, smoke, licorice, pepper and a strong rocky character. Quite suave on entry, then thick but vibrant in the middle, with powerful, well- integrated acidity accentuating the impression of intensity.

2004 C. Beck Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Wine Enthusiast: "From a Calistoga vineyard, this is a wine Pet fans will celebrate. Inky black and concentrated, it's lush in pastry-filling blackberry, cherry, plum, chocolate and coffee flavors, and with twenty months in French oak, there's tons of vanilla, caramel char and sweet oak tannins." (10/2007) Wine Spectator: "Dense, drying and chewy, with a clear mineral note and an echo of a nuttiness in the background. Spicy blackberry, raspberry and chocolate notes are tasty, lingering on the finish. (Web-2008) (MW)" K&L Notes: According to the winery: "Our Petite Sirah comes from a single vineyard loca...

2009 Pascal Marchand Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Sweet Spot* A classic nose that is distinctly sauvage and even more complex if less elegant than that of the Latricières with more earth and game emphasis that is followed by ripe, supple and relatively seductive medium weight plus flavors that possess buckets of extract on the concentrated, intense and seriously persistent finish. This should be outstanding in time though note that yet again, lots of it will be required." (1/2011) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Sweet berry, licorice, and Asian spice aromas and flavors highlight this supple, charming red. Open and enjoyable now, with m ...Read More »
