Ripe, lush palate of blueberry-currant fruit with layers of mocha and dry herb – showing very nice palate texture. The “tobacco” note comes through with some air and the overall structure is fat (but) with medium tannins. Complex Merlot – multi-faceted, shows the best of Penman’s Merlot fruit character. It is very “upper-shelf” quality that can challenge Napa-Sonoma Merlots. Extremely drinkable, but that excellent balance, fruit depth and structure will let it improve for 2-5 years.

3-year vertical of Penman Petite Sirah, Paso Robles, Moderate-dark blackish-ruby color. Rich, spicy blackberry, dark plum, earthy cocoa aromas with background oak. Lush, round palate impression with varietal plum-berry fruit, a soft cocoa-blackberry middle and finely-integrated oak adding “fatness” and complexity. Textbook Petite Sirah character with only moderate tannins – virtually “elegant” for the varietal. Sinfully drinkable now but should evolve for another 2-3+ years. Long cocoa-berry finish with oak underneath. Very “polished” style. SILVER Medal 2015 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, valued at $150
