2015 LDV Vineyard Petite Sirah – Fairly extracted from the beginning, you could possibly be forgiven for assuming this was some type of dessert wine, dense with raisin and dried plum notes earlier than shifting into a mixture of milk chocolate and baking spice, heavy with nutmeg. Candy to a fault from begin to end, I discovered a number of the underlying flavors worthwhile, however the general wine a lot too dense and sugary to complete a glass. C / $40

2015 LDV Vineyard Petite Sirah Signature – Additionally very extracted and dense, however this bottling — aged solely 33 months as an alternative of 35 — has extra to differentiate and suggest it, together with a punch of licorice that tempers a number of the heavy, weighty black fruit within the combine. Heavier notes of (darker) chocolate and a clearer vanilla notice add sweetness but additionally mute a number of the underlying spice. General, it’s nonetheless a particularly wealthy, heady wine — however one with higher steadiness throughout. B / $48
