This is a delicious Petit Verdot from Napa Valley.
Tasty right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours in the decanter.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, chocolates, tobacco leaf, spices, tar, peppercorn, dark coffee, earth and licorice.
Full bodied with medium acidity.
Dry and fruity on the palate.
Loved the nose here.

My last ‘10, wow how nicely this aged. One of Chile's finest premier wines. Dark deep Ruby, a blend of 71% Carmenère, 18% Cab Sauv and 11% Merlot, aged in 100% new French oak for 24 months. Aromas of ripe red fruit with sweet spice and earthy herbs. On the palate flavors of ripe plum, raspberry and black cherry and notes of figs, mushroom, vanilla and cacao. Complex structure, round velvet tannins, good balance, long finish ending with some herb, leather and espresso notes. Outstanding. — 4 days ago
Cigar, cedar, black currant, toast and a tiny bit of vanilla. The palate is well made with a strong acid backbone, a good fruit all along, a smooth, almost velvety mouthfeel, rolling tannins in the rear before a long finish with currant, these rolling tannins, a tiny bit of a salty touch. It plays way above its league — 8 days ago
Quite nice - balance + expression = food friendliness :) Ripe pineapple, candied apricot, golden raisin drive this now 5yr old build. The acid has waned but still stands up strong to picnic-style burrito bowls with a refreshing elegance! Only aspect keeping this from a higher evaluation is the lack of varietal acidic verve. Nevertheless, well made! — 11 days ago
Absolutely stunning. Opened and aired for 24hrs before tasting. Layers upon layers here. Fruit and tannins still here and was continuing to evolve and open when finished over 4 hrs. Really a beautiful bottle. What a treat. Still got more to show us at 23 years. — 4 days ago
This is a delicious red blend from Washington State. Showing blackberries, coffee, chocolates, vanilla, cedar, earth, light vegetables, licorice, spices and tobacco leaf.
Full bodied with medium acidity. Dry on the palate and very fruity.
Nicely balanced with a great mouthfeel and nice complexity.
Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. After 90 minutes of airtime, tannins comes out.
Tangy and rich. Spicy and interesting.
Feels like a mixture of Bordeaux and a Napa blend. Very interesting and tasty.
Would age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 12% Petit Verdot.
