92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009
($60; from Calistoga fruit plus a bit of Peterson Ranch) Deep, saturated ruby. Wild, superripe black fruit, meat and pepper aromas perked up by a violet topnote. Supersweet and lush but with plenty of tannic support for the powerful, slightly raisiny dark berry flavors. At once denser and sweeter than the Pepperland, but with no shortage of energy. The huge, dusty tannins coat the front teeth. A chewy, no-holds-barred petite sirah that's worth laying down.
