2017 ROBERT BIALE ROYAL PUNISHERS PETITE SIRAH

$48.00 $48.00

The two grape varieties crossed to create Petite Sirah are Pelousin and Syrah, and Robert Biale’s Royal Punishers got its name from scrambling the letters of both parent grapes. This deep, inky, and powerful red, is appropriately named and deserves its reputation as one of Napa Valley’s top Petite Sirahs.

Robert Biale sources his Royal Punishers Petite Sirah from Carpy-Connolly Ranch in Rutherford. The well-drained gravel and sandy loam soils, and warm daytime temperatures are ideally suited for ripening Petite Sirah grapes.

The wine team harvested the 2017 vintage in late September, a couple of weeks before the wildfires, and the fruit first was sorted in the vineyard by hand, and again at the winery, keeping only the best berries. They performed punch-downs three times each day during maceration, extracting an incredibly deep, inky color, which is a hallmark of this wine.

Description

2017 ROBERT BIALE ROYAL PUNISHERS PETITE SIRAH

“This is a dark, brooding wine that’s aged in Burgundian oak for 17 months. The blue and black fruit is lush and ample, built around a core of tannins and toasted oak that work well to accentuate without distraction.”
91Points
“A rich, flavorful red with blackberries, walnuts and a hint of coffee bean. Full body. Polished, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.”
91 Points
“The 2017 Royal Punishers has a deep, blackish blue color profile. Aromas of dusty currants, blueberry, quince, violets, figs, molasses, graphite and baked rye. The entry is weighty with a broad mid-palate structure which has layers of ripe, black fruit flavors. The oak profile is balanced and the tannins are mouthwatering and medium grained which hold the fruit profile and carry a long, lingering finish.”
