95pointsMadrigal 2005 Barberis Family Vineyard Petite Sirah (Napa Valley)

Editors' Choice

Fifty bucks for Petite Sirah? You bet. It's a huge wine, black as midnight, dry and tannic, with amazingly deep, long flavors of currants, Mexican chocolate mole sauce, crême de cassis, sweet old leather, anise, pepper, cinnamon and smoky oak. Has the balanced complexity of a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, with Petite Sirah's classic earthiness and depth. This quintessential wine should age for at least a decade.
