Phase V

The 2014 Phase V Petite Sirah is a beautiful deep purple color with a violet fringe. There are notes of tobacco, cigar box, blueberry, graphite and a touch of black pepper on the nose. The palate hints at sweetness and is rich with bacon, vanilla and blackberry. The full-bodied mouth feel is soft and silky with well-integrated tannins that linger gracefully and lead to a long juicy finish. This Petite Sirah is showing splendidly but has a lot more to give and will age exquisitely for many years.
