This well-priced Petite Sirah seems to get better each year. Rosenblum must have a side business in India ink because this is another absolutely opaque wine. Appealingly chewy mouth texture. Deep blackberry fruit with a spicy floral edge and excellent spiciness. I suppose this wine will age well, but there's no way one would last in our cellar more than a year. It's delicious right now. - WB Team 2004-04-16
