Robert Biale Royal Punishers Petite Sirah 2014




Intense deep, dark blue/black color profile. Exploding aromas of plum, quince, violets, fig cookie, molasses, caramel and marbled rye awaken the nose. The entry is soft and subtle, then builds into a broad mid palate structure which has layers of ripe, black fruit flavors.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Petite Sirah Royal Punishers hails from Rutherford and has a wonderfully juicy blackberry and cassis nose with white flowers, licorice and incense. It is full-bodied and opulent without a hard edge to be found. This is a beauty that comes in at 14.9% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next 15 or more years.
