*2006 Robert Biale Royal Punishers Petite Sirah
Robert Biale Vineyards Royal Punishers Petite Sirah, Napa Valley, USA 2006
Dark nose and body that smells like raspberry when you feel the glass. The nose is quite strong on alcohol and I get a toasted bread and dark fruits which you also find In the body together with blackberries and maybe some fire . The tannins are also medium high and last a long time.
The 2006 Petite Sirah Royal Punishers displays the color of pen ink. Moderately intense aromas of new oak, blackberries, blueberries, pepper, and flowers emerge from this 2006. The least impressive effort, but still outstanding, this medium to full-bodied wine requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should last for 15-20 years. (RP)
