Robert Biale Napa Valley Thomann Station Petite Sirah 2005 Wine Review (NW)
Huge nose of crushed dark berries, currants, and tar
Full bodied on the palate
Rustic finish of dark berries and herbs
Here's a big, muscular Petite Sirah that's just softening up a bit now six years after harvest. It's rustic and tannic but dark and complex. If you have some, it's good that you waited to drink this. But don't wait too long or the fruit could fade. It's showing some big aromas of crushed berries right now that really drive this wine. Go ahead and enjoy!
I paid $20 for this on a close-out deal, but the release price was $55. It's an extremely small production wine at just over 300 cases or so from an excellent producer. Raise a glass!
