The 2018 Palisades Vineyard Petite Sirah is an absolute knockout. This immediately grabs your attention with its dark, inky purple color which is followed by expressive aromatics of blackberries, blackcurrants, raspberries, dark plums, cloves and sandalwood with secondary layers of black pepper, violets and dried spice that all come together and burst from the glass. On the palate this has a full body, backed by a beautiful supple texture that is layered with delicious ripe dark fruits, berries and a touch of blood orange which persists through the long tannic finish. This a powerful red that is flat out delicious today and should also go on to age incredibly well for at least a decade.
