    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 Thompson Vineyard Petite Sirah is a very big wine with incredible darkness, power, and purity of fruit. The cool growing season led to long hang time, providing for ripe tannins and good acidity. It has gobs of cherry-berry-dry and black fruit flavors, spice and licorice aromas, and a stick-to-your-lips quality. Approachable as a young wine, it will also reward additional cellaring. 100% Petite Sirah.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Effusive and lively, with beautiful violet notes announcing the blackberry, plum and spice notes while cedar and sandalwood details linger in the background. Balanced between boldness and elegance, offering firm tannins. Drink now through 2022.

    Rich, ripe and oaky, this Petite Sirah charms with flashy blackberry, cherry and dark chocolate flavors that are opulent through the long finish. The vineyard is in the Los Alamos region.

    Inky purple. Candied blackberry and cola on the nose, with notes of cracked pepper and mocha adding complexity. Big and broad but lively, offering juicy dark fruit flavors and a late jolt of tangy acidity. Shows very good clarity and lift on the long, spicy finish. Energetic for this normally burly variety.
