Wine Spectator 87 points - Toasted coconut and vanilla-scented wild berry fruit flavors have a candied edge, with tomato leaf and smoke accents on the appealingly tannic finish. Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now. 60,000 cases made.

"This Petite Sirah has a little Petit Verdot blended in. It has aromas of ripe fruit, black pepper, vanilla and blueberry. The wine is not the typical fruit bomb that Petite Sirah's usually are. Instead, it is dry and elegant, but fruit forward with a nice, lengthy, fruity finish."
