Uniquely Californian, this is a bold, densely flavored, glass-staining powerhouse from veteran Napa Valley growers.
|Unit price:||$0.00 /|
Robert Biale descended from two previous generations of Napa Valley grape growers, specializing in Zinfandel. It wasn't until 1991 that Robert Biale winery was established specializing in two varietals that have a unique relationship to California: Zin and Petite Sirah. Ever since, Biale's name is mentioned whenever the subject of elite producers of either varietal is mentioned. Sampling "Royal Punishers" with its glass-staining, rich, dark appearance and its toasty herbaceousness in the aroma, you just begin to realize Biale's position in the Petite Sirah firmament. Densely flavored, bold, fruity flavors of blackberries with a take-no-prisoners posture. The drying tannins are bold. This 14.8% powerhouse begs for pork shoulder, pot roast or a fatty charred steak.
