The 2019 Palisades Vineyard 'Old Vine' Petite Sirah is a massive, towering wine from Tor. It displays a menacing pitch dark glass staining color, before instantly bursting open to aromas of blueberries, huckleberries and dark cherries which are woven together with violets, spices, pepper and hints of scorched earth nuances. On the palate this is full-bodied, layered and incredibaly concentrated. It gushes with flavors of ripe blue and dark fruit flavors that merge with floral and spices which persist through the big round finish. This is a full-throttle Petite Sirah that is very expressive today and it will be very interesting to watch this evolve for years to come.
