91 Points, Wine Spectator.
Limited Production from this 99-year old vineyard continues to impress. 2008 stands up to this wine's prior 89 Point score and Gold Medal. Color and fruit concentration are never a problem with Petite, it’s always managing tannin that sets the better wines apart. It has a deliciousness factor due to fully rip and integrated tannins, all of which were set up perfectly by the vineyard conditions. The nose and palate both feature very dark fruited cores augmented by mint, cola and a black Muscat that has become a trademark for this bottling. 2008 vintage is drinkable now but should also drink well for several decades.

2008 - 91 points Wine Spectator
"Dark as motor oil, this is thickly tannic, but with flavors that pack an equal wallop. Ripe blackberry, huckleberry and boysenberry notes are ripe and fragrant, with peppery, cedary details and terrific focus on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
250 cases made." — MW.
