2008 Vintage Sold Out

As we recently mentioned here, Robert Parker retired from his traditional role at The Wine Advocate as primary reviewer and wine critic, and his place was taken by one of his long standing proteges, Antonio Galloni. Naturally, such an important succession left questions as to how our wine would be reviewed. Little doubt is now left:

Denis Sutro left a successful career as a First Amendment trial lawyer to focus on wine. Sutro and his wife, Anne Carver, make some of the most unique Petite Sirahs in California. The estate's Palisades Vineyard is located in northeast Calistoga. The blocks used for the Petite Sirah were planted in 1968 and 1977, very old by Napa Valley standards. These wines are long on class and personality. Even better, they remain exceptionally well priced considering the quality of what is in the bottle. The 2008 Petite Sirahy is one of the most elegant, refined and utterly impeccable Petite Sirahs I have ever tasted. Blackberries, white flowers, licorice, and tar are some of the many nuances that flow from this fabulous wine. There is plenty of fruit here, yet the 2008 impresses for its impeccable balance and fabulous sense of harmony. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.
Score: 93+
