ONCE & FUTURE PALISADES VINEYARD PETITE SIRAH 2017
92+ Points - Erin Brooks - The Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard comes from dry-farmed, head-pruned, 44-year-old vines planted in bale loam. It was harvested on September 7 and aged in 30% new French oak. "It's my opinion Napa would be famous for Petite Sirah if it weren't for Cabernet Sauvignon," says winemaker Joel Peterson. Opaque purple-black in color, it opens with fresh violets, cassis, aniseed, crushed blueberries and boysenberries plus hints of vanilla and coffee bean. The palate is full-bodied and demonstrates restraint for the grape, with finely detailed black and blue fruits, a firm but ripe frame and long, lifted finish. What a lovely expression. This is approachable now but will age well in bottle. 201 cases were made."
