Outer quote mark The 2012 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard is even richer and fuller. This spectacular Petite Syrah is meant for 30 years of evolution. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

Outer quote mark The 2012 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard is laced with a compelling array of pomegranate, orange peel, spices, new leather, white flowers, cloves and dark red/black cherries. All things considered, the 2012 offers an attractive interplay of expressive fruit and structure, although the pure visceral thrill of the best vintages isn't quite there.

Outer quote mark this is 85% petite sirah, plus bits of 26 other varieties, including 9 whites; from vines planted between the 1880s and 1920s): Bright red-ruby. Blackberry and licorice on the nose, lifted by a lavender topnote. Vibrant and sharply delineated, with peppery acidity energizing the perfumed flavors of cassis, spices and fresh apricot. Very complex and subtle wine with uncanny verve for its 3.8 pH. These old field blends are full of surprises. Inner quote mark (5/2014)
