Ok, I'll be the contrarian on this one. Feel like I'm drinking Gattinara from a cold vintage, or Snapple peach iced tea made with unripe peaches. I don't know if there is enough fruit to last the amount of time needed to ease the tannins. I might be wrong but don't know that I would want to place a wager on it blossoming into something

Need to hold. A while. Really great after having been open and aired out a while, but this wine is in it for the long haul. 11.9% abv, whaaaat?

Deep purple color. Mostly blue fruit on palate. It's good but not really my jam. Interesting intellectually to get these aromatics and depth of flavor at 11.9% for sure. Left it open for multiple days.

I thought this was quite enjoyable. Nice depth of fruit, with some tart and nuance. Had a refreshing note.

Black pepper, black tea, sugar plum. So good. Light alcohol, medium acid but full body.

Fruity in the beginning and smoothes out to a lighter fruit forward glass. Tannins are non distinct and light.

Not for the faint of heart, tannic and deep, but surprisingly drinkable at 11.9% abv, this is an old style petite sirah from centenarian vines. Makes me feel young! Eat your heart out, Paul Draper, and kudos once again to Hardy and co.
