Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Thompson Vineyard Petite Sirah is a very big wine with incredible darkness, power, and purity of fruit. The cool growing season led to long hang time, providing for ripe tannins and good acidity. It has gobs of cherry-berry-dry and black fruit flavors, spice and licorice aromas, and a stick-to-your-lips quality. Approachable as a young wine, it will also reward additional cellaring. 100% Petite Sirah.
