2015 Petite Sirah, "The Pergola"
93 Points Josh Raynolds, Vinous
90 Points- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
Our 2015 Estate-grown Pergola Petite Sirah is an elegant expression of this varietal. It is a vibrant, ruby color with aromatics that are dominated by cherry kirsch and raspberries, with underpinnings of vanilla and violet. The flavors follow with richly concentrated blackberry, baker’s chocolate and lovely earth tones. The wine’s velvety weight is contrasted and brought dimension through the bright acidity that is most evident in the midpalate. Medium and well-defined tannins give the 2015 Pergola a long and lingering finish.
