Chiarello Roux Old Vine Estate Petite Sirah 2005
Region: St. Helena, California
Winery: Chiarello Family Vineyards
Variety: Petite Sirah
Nose: Great blue/black fruit, especially blackberry, but a bit closed at first. This old vine wine is not ready yet for its full potential, yet the nose was still large after a few minutes of swirling. I'd love to have decanted this wine first.
Palate: Had some very interesting floral flavors, that I really liked More of that fruit on the palate with some great tannic structure and definite dust, not quite earthy tho. This still has a bright side to it. Very interesting and I want to check back in a few years.
