Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Rutherford Petite Sirah is deep, dark purple in color and amazingly textured with over-the-top concentration of fruit flavors.

Lush aromas of wild blackberries, cherries and plum are interwoven with licorice, black pepper and hints of wild game. This wine has unique jammy ripeness with long, soft tannins and a lingering coffee, mocha oak finish.

Drink now and over the next 10 to 12 years.
