2011 Girard Petite Sirah Napa Valley...$21.99Compare to $30 on The Wine Spectator
A tremendous wine, showing both polish and power. Smoky, toasty notes frame the pepper, sandalwood, tar and licorice flavors, but with fresh, vibrant flavors of raspberry, kirsch and plum at the core. Drink now through 2025. 4,432 cases made. —M.W.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
