88pointsOccasio 2009 Del Arroyo Vineyard Petite Sirah (Livermore Valley)

Cellar Selection

This is lovely in violet perfume and bacony leather, structured like a tall building and best left to mellow out for further development. Winemaker John Kinney destemmed without crushing to preserve as many whole berries as he could, and kept the wine fermenting at lower temperatures to tame the tannins. Virginie Boone
