Like the '97 , this vintage of Dynamite Hill Petite Sirah is rich and complex. Good balance, nearly black color, floral nose with dark-berry flavors and an almost cocoa finish are just some of the nuances, which seem to change as the wine breathes. Round, firm tannins promise some aging potential, but this wine drinks just fine now. - MJA 2002-10-28

[+superman1  2003-01-16] I agree with the review but it is the 1999 not the 2000 vintage.  User Rating: 90.
