Alcohol/vol 14.7%
A deeply hued wine featuring rich aromatics of plum, coffee, fig, and blackberry. Medium bodied and round with notes of molasses, baking spice, and graphite on the palate. Supple, well-knit tannins frame this wonderfully complex Napa Valley Petite Sirah.

Black figs, road tar and dark chocolate fill the aroma before ultraripe blackberries, all concentrated and deep, highlight the flavors. The wine is fully tannic but this is matched by the intensity of the fruit. A monumental wine that's a good bet for extended aging. Drink from 2028-2040.

The inky, glass-staining 2021 Petite Sirah Royal Punishers offers up a gorgeous nose of pure blackcurrants, blackberries, peppery herbs, graphite, and darker chocolate. I love its purity, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a dense, concentrated mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This is one of those blockbuster-styled Petite Sirahs that somehow manages to stay fresh, focused, and beautifully balanced.

For a more approachable Biale Petite Sirah, the 2021 Petite Sirah Royal Punishers features blueberries, black cherries and hints of caramel oak (it matured in 35% new French oak) on the nose. Full-bodied on the palate, it adds hints of mocha and dark chocolate, finishing ripe and gently tannic. Delicious now, the only fear is if and when it may temporarily shut down.
