2004 Retro Cellars Howell Mountain Petite Sirah

SKU #1032421

The 2003 Retro Cellars Petite Sirah was received with much critical acclaim, garnering 91 points from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine and 87-89 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar. The 2004 is their second vintage, made from the same exceptional, low yield fruit from Howell Mountain's Park Muscatine Vineyard. Aged in Tonnellerie Cadus and Tonnellerie Billon barrels, the wine displays some oak-influenced vanilla and spice, with cinnamon, cranberry, toasted almond and hazelnut on the nose. On the palate, find flavors of candied yam, blueberry, gingerbread. This vintage was rated 92 points by the Wine Enthusiast, who wrote: "Tannin alert! This is old-fashionedly rustic, a wine for the cellar. Give it 6 to 8 years to begin to unlock the blackberries; it could live longer that that." (12/07)
