The vineyard is on a mountainside overlooking central Mendocino, and is famous for the potency of its red wines. This Petite Sirah is enormous in fruity extract and tannins. Just detonates on the palate with blackberry jam, blueberry, milk chocolate, mushu plum sauce, black pepper and smoky oak flavors. But those tannins tug and obstruct full enjoyment. Give it through 2009, and it should develop in the bottle for many years.
