Critical Acclaim

"Also closed, tannic, and backward, but enormously concentrated, is the inky/purple-tinged 2007 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge. With coaxing, it offers up scents of pepper, incense, blackberries, and crushed rocks, but the wine is extremely tannic and impenetrable.

Rating: 91(+?)?"
