Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Antonio Galloni - Girard’s 2010 Petite Sirah is an absolutely beautiful bottle of wine. Sweet black currants, spices, violets, asphalt and grilled herbs all take shape in this mid-weight, yet luscious red. This is a decidedly refined, plush Petite Syrah with lovely balance, but little of the weight or firmness usually associated with the grape, which can be good or bad, depending on one’s point of view. The wine’s balance, however, is beyond reproach. This is a great showing from Girard. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
