Petite sirah was long regarded as a poor relation among California's red-wine grapes, but lately it has gained a well-deserved cult following. This excellent example is lush, ripe, intense and complex. The wine is packed with blackberry, black pepper, smoked meat and herbal flavor. It has the structure to age for a decade but can be enjoyed now.
