2009 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:

The 2009 Petite sirah is fleshy, ripe and totally beautiful. The flavor profile tends towards dark red rather than black fruit, along with flowers, licorice and tobacco. Whereas the 08 needs more time in the bottle, the 2009 does not. It is a wonderfully open, seductive wine to drink now and over the next 7-10 years. This is a richer, more generous style than the 2008, and is a better choice for drinking today. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
