2001 Vintage Sold Out; Robert Parker's score:94

It was a real pleasure to sell this luxurious vintage. It was wonderful interacting with our customers, and experiencing their enjoyment. This wine added to our appreciation, now after 10 years of winemaking, that our vineyard produces remarkably consistent, terroir-driven vintages. Our conclusions are reflected by Mr. Parker’s comments about the 2001 wine:

“Carver Sutro’s 2001 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard ranks alongside some of the finest California Petite Sirahs I have tasted. This 450 case, inky/purple-colored cuvee exhibits sumptuous aromas of graphite, blackberries, blueberries, acacia flowers, and barrique. A glorious display of fruit on the palate is followed by a full-bodied, concentrated, impeccably balanced red. High but sweet tannin is well integrated in this infant Petite Sirah. It probably will not hit its peak for 7 -10 years, and should last for 20 – 25.”
