Surprisingly good
This is a very good wine.  I favor red varieties more than petite sirah, but this one has a bold taste and good color.  It's rather "full" for this variety; a bit atypical...but a terrific taste and finish.  Bought it with 11 other wines at the last 5 cent sale, and returned to buy two cases immediately after the purchase.  This wine improves with a long decant.

Big Bold Vigilance Petite Sirah
If you don't like big bold reds, keep looking because this is 'Kick your pallete in the teeth' kind of red. Earlier review suggested letting it age a few years. That may be a good idea but I suggest you try it now. First taste is almost chalky and I thought "no way, wrong turn here." However, after a few minutes I decide to give it another shot. After all, the wine was in the glass already and had now had had a little time to open up. What a difference! So, if you like a bold red, try it. If it doesn't work out for you, return it to Bevmo for full refund. BTW, I'm here now to order more but they're out of stock. That should tell you something. While you're at it, try the Vigilance Cimarron too.

Not a good expression of Petit Sirah
This is an 86-87 pointer, IMHO. I give it 3 starts in terms of value, and this is only if you get it on the 5c sale, under 10 bucks. I love Petit Sirah, I love big wines, and I love tannic wines. But this is brutally tannic, with an over the top astrigency that really cuts the finish to a short, overly dry moment. The nose is mostly earthy and alcoholic, very little there, and very little of this wonderful dark fruit explosion a good Petit Sirah shines for. The deep dark color is the only pretty thing in this wine. It definitely needs to be put to sleep for a few years to moderate the tanning, but then again, the moderate concentration of fruit doesn't make it a good candidate to aging. On the second day (kept on a vacuvin), and after long decanting, the tannin was a bit under control, but some off putting aromas and tastes developed, another indication that this is not a wine that would benefit from aging. Perhaps I got a bad bottle, but it wasn't corked, so it doesn't seem very likely. Anyway, I'll update the review if the second bottle turns any better.
