 Wine Advocate 87 points (Apr 2013)
The 2011 Petite Sirah-Zinfandel Reserve is often a charming, good value option from Recanati. As the brand has developed, it has essentially become a Petite Sirah - there is only 5% Zinfandel lately (as recently as 2005, it had 30%). This year shows the same tasty fruit as always, but there is also notable acidity, some tannic pop and generally good structure as well, along with some hints of vanilla and blueberries. It is quite gripping on the finish. On the downside, there was a certain smoky, charred note that made me suspect some modest reductive issues. As it aired out and time went on, I cared less about that fading nuance, so hopefully it is not a real issue and it will continue to resolve, in which case this is on its usual track. There were 12,980 bottles produced. Drink now-2019.

Wine maker notes
Grapes are harvested by hand from early September through mid-October. Immediately following the crush, the must is chilled to 60F in route to the fermentation vats. The crushed grapes then cold macerate for three days to cultivate their complex taste and singular fragrance. After three weeks of fermentation, the wine is transferred to small French oak barrels where it is left to age for 17 months.

Food pairing
Savor with rich stews, red meats and hearty pasta dishes. Also superb with hard, aged cheeses. For maximum enjoyment, decant for one hour prior to drinking and serve at cool room temperature.
