You want it BIG!? The warmth of the northern valley floor ripened this Muscle Man Petite Sirah into a big burly berry pie of a wine. Inky in color, the wine glass is coated in purple crank case fluid, staining the stainless. Huge and viscous on the palate, mouth coating flavors of ripe blackberry pie will stick to your teeth and linger in a finish that lasts for a half-hour. Do not drink this and drive – you will not fool anyone, it's hopeless.
Deep, saturated ruby. Wild, superripe black fruit, meat and pepper aromas perked up by a violet topnote. Supersweet and lush but with plenty of tannic support for the powerful, slightly raisiny dark berry flavors. At once denser and sweeter than the Pepperland, but with no shortage of energy. The huge, dusty tannins coat the front teeth. A chewy, no-holds-barred petite sirah that's worth laying down.
