Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2012 Product #28232 (In Stock)
Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend  2012 Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend  2012

From Train's Jimmy Stafford, a rock solid value red for sipping and grilling.  Ripe and fruit-forward with loads of blackberry and boysenberry fruit plus just a touch of plum pudding and spice.  Soft and wide open from first pour, this finishes with big, but very soft, tannins.  Jimmy and the boys suggest pairing with eggplant lasagna or  molten chocolate cake.  We were leaning to burgers and ribs, but who are we to argue with a rock star?

Robert Biale Petite Sirah Royal Punishers 2011 Robert Biale Petite Sirah Royal Punishers 2011

As Wine Advocate likes to say, the entire Biale lineup "delivers outstanding quality for the money.  The wines are loaded with personality and distinctiveness througout."  Another blockbuster Petite Sirah from Biale, you'll find oodles of blueberry, violet, clove, herb, smoke and more in this full-bodied, perfumed red.  Tannins are firm - as you'd expect - so enjoy with something meaty off the grill.

Relic Old Vine Petite Sirah 2011 Product #28444 (In Stock)
Relic Old Vine Petite Sirah 2011 Relic Old Vine Petite Sirah 2011

From the legendary Frediani Vineyard, in Calistoga, just up the road from Araujo and next to Hundred Acre’s new vineyard.  Current owner/farmer Al Frediani’s father purchased this site shortly after arriving in the USA from Italy in the early 1900s.  Al, now 92 years-old, worked the vineyards as a child and personally planted the Petite Sirah vines in the late 1940s.  Since then, he’s never watered the vines, never sprayed them with insecticides, and more or less them along – other than occasionally pulling up a weed here and there.

The combination of 2011’s cool weather and the well-drained soils created unbelievable complexity and elegance in what is fast becoming one of Napa’s benchmark Petite Sirahs.  The aromas are fabulous, exploding with dark black plum, blackberry, dusty cocoa and hot rock scents.  The palate is every bit as big, rich, and unctuous as you’d expect from Petite Sirah, but shows unusual elegance and poise for such a big wine.  Black fruits, white pepper, bitter chocolate, and purple floral flavors shimmer across your lounge before the masses of fine tannin kick in for support.  I love how well integrated the alcohol is and the very, very, loooong finish with layers of warm fruit compote, spice, and more.  Drink now and for the next half-dozen years or so.

Keplinger Sumo 2011 Product #27920 (In Stock)
Keplinger Sumo 2011 Keplinger Sumo 2011

Helen's husband/partner DJ calls this Petite Sirah blend the "velvet sledghamer."  About right, I think! Delicious now with air, but even better next year.  Just 190 cases made of this ripe, perfectly balanced, explosive red.

"Keplinger's 2011 Sumo tastes like a young wine right out of tank, such is the purity of its fruit. Cloves, menthol, tar, licorice and blueberries meld together in an intense, inky Petite Sirah loaded with class. I would drink the 2011 early and cellar the 2010 for another few years. A juicy, expressive finish rounds out this soft, beautifully contoured wine. In 2011 Sumo is 85% Petite Sirah, 13% Syrah and 4% Viognier."  Antonio Galloni 93 points
