"Black pepper and  boysenberries put   oomph   into this  dark-colored and firmly structured wine. While vivid and concentrated, the fruit, spice and dark-chocolate flavors are not sweet, but beautifully dry  and  appetizing, made  to pair with  a rare  steak or tender osso buco.  It will drink  best from 2019. "

"Inky ruby. Aromas of mineral- and smoke-accented dark berries and violet on the deeply perfumed nose; a suggestion of cracked pepper adds spicy lift. Pliant cherry and blueberry flavors show a supple, seamless quality and put on weight with air. Displays very good energy on an impressively long finish shaped by sneaky, harmonious tannins."

"This 2013 Petite is an impressive expression of varietal and place with deep intensity and full throttled flavors, it’s more of a studied classic version of California Petite Sirah than the more Rhone(ish) or Cornas like Halcon Vineyards from the same vineyard, this mostly due to the partial whole cluster in the Halcon, and some of it is from the aging in different oak, both are brilliant, but nicely different too.  The Theopolis is richer in palate and shows a sweeter opulence. The Theopolis Vineyards Estate Petite Sirah is wonderfully opaque with a dark black/purple hue in the glass, full of dense fruit and power, it weighs in at 14.8%, but still feels remarkably balanced with it’s high elevation and cool climate acidity, it was aged 23 months in 100% French oak, with 25% new, which adds to the class and refinement in this serious wine that has that “wow” factor and impact."
