    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Petite Sirah, Thompson Vineyard – This is a very big wine. In its sixth vintage, this wine maintains incredible darkness, power, and purity of fruit. This wine has more tannin and is higher in acid than previous vintages. It has gobs of cherry-berry-dry and black fruit flavors, spice and licorice aromas, and a stick-to-your-lips quality. Four new American, plus 8 neutral barrels were used.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard is another dazzling wine, but it needs time, perhaps quite a lot. A massive, broad-shouldered frame provides the canvas for super-expressive blueberries, smoke, mint, licorice and blackberry jam. This shows fabulous depth, richness and power, but it would be a shame to open a bottle until the wine settles down. It may take as long as a decade for the tannin to melt away, although I am optimistic the wine will enter its sweet spot before then. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
