Upon release, the 2011 Shake Ridge Petite should be allowed to awaken slowly, decanting will shake it gently from its slumber and is recommended. The aromatics are vibrant and after just a few minutes of fresh air, the palette opens with fleshy redolent flavors of baked rhubarb pie, raspberry tart grilled duck breast and savory late harvest fig chutney. Wet earth after a hard rain, melted chocolate, smoked paprika, and underlying exotic spices slowly developed while aging in Hungarian Oak for two years. The flavors are well integrated and unfold in a pleasing manner along with a grippy finish. Drink now or let rest for a year if you will but enjoy the wine for its juicy nature now through 2024.

Wine SpectatorThe smoky, charred notes in this red are intense and savory, with pepper, mineral and forest floor accents, and flavors of rosemary and pure plum and wild blackberry fruit. Tannins are firm and gripping on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 206 cases made.
