T-Vine Napa Valley 2012 Petite Sirah, $12.74-$35.99, 88+ points, was an opaque ruby that graded purple/red and finally matador-red at the broad clear wine ring and leggy glass bowl.
Redolent smells of cocoa, earth, black olives, and plum were very good.
Full-bodied, good acidity, and robust tannin managed early palate syrupy black cherry which mellowed nicely into flavors of black licorice, marzipan, and plum.
Finished long on the trailing palate, a chalky blackberry with warm spices and the 14.5% alcohol.
The label states that only 850 cases were produced.
