The 2009 Aratás is both massive and seductive. At its core, it possesses an opaque purple-colored density, an excellent representation of a pure Petite Sirah. It is tremendously perfumed, offering up scents of white flowers, licorice, cassis, blackberries, and sweet dark roasted espresso. This is a dense, full-bodied and evolved wine that has the ability to age for decades. Drink or hold until 2030. (94WS)
