Napa Valley Petit Verdot 2009

David T

It’s good to follow Winemakers. I follow Charles Hendricks. However, Charles last James Cole vintage was 2013.

100% Petit Verdot in anyone’s hands is tricky. This 09 made by Charles is elegant young...just as it is now. It’s just rounder & softer after 9 1/2 years in bottle. It still has teeth but, complex & floral with dark, grippy tarry, round tannins. The darkest of roasted & used expresso grounds, dry earth with dark & brilliant florals. Beautiful acidity and elegant persistent finish.

This offering has another 10-15 of good drinking ahead. Properly stored of course.

Perbacco Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

A little tight on the first glass. Cherry cola. Lingering taste of tart strawberries. Pairs well with the pork picnic I smoked for the last 7 hours. Compliments the bbq sauce and cole slaw. Will age the next bottle for 5 to 10 years. After some aeration, it blossoms nicely and smooths out. — 2 months ago
