92pointsJacob Franklin 2009 Chavez-Leeds Vineyard Petite Sirah (Napa Valley)

The vineyard is in Rutherford, and the wine shows the dusty tannins that this commune is famous for. They're an integral part of the palate experience, along with lush, plush blackberry, plum, charred meat, dark chocolate, black pepper and anise flavors. Impressive for the way it tackles Petite Sirah's rustic character and imposes true Napa elegance. Drink now–2017.
