I was so surprised by the color on this that I dug into the deep crevices of the stash and pulled a bottle of the 2015 Petite Sirah, that I hadn't planned on touching for another year. It is almost that dark and I'm sure with some settling of the solids might rival it. So now I wait for the Cab Franc and Pinot Noir, hoping an upcoming business trip doesn't interfere.
Just keep a glass of water handy when you drink it to rinse it off the teeth...
