Petit Verdot


Mendoza Petit Verdot 2009

From last week (purchased at the winery in Mendoza in 2011). Really interesting flavor profile, with soft, integrated tannins. Definitely on the downslope, but still really good (and went great with the Snake River Farms Waygu Flat Iron steak I grilled for dinner!). — 3 days ago

Starts with blueberry and bramble. Soft tannins, fairly high acidity. Minerals, maybe iron? On the long finish. — 2 days ago

Napanook Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

7.5 years ago, I bought this from a local bottle shop for 55 bucks. And I'm not really sure how I held on to this one for so long except maybe I had a similar vintage and thought it was nowhere near ready. Well, this one was ready tonight. The front has a nose of sweet oak, herbs, blackberry. The entry is blackberry with a touch of pencil shaving. Medium to full-bodied. The middle goes a little bit darker with some perfectly ripe plum and figs. Perfectly aged blackberry in the background as the core and backbone of this wine. Finishes actually with pretty sweet oak tannin and really not a lot of pepper spice. This went very well with non-spicy Asian cuisine which was the fare tonight. I think this wine would go perfectly with anything that isn't too spicy as I was not really picking up a lot of acidity, spice, or pepper notes on the middle and finish. This is drinking at its height right now and probably will for the next three to five years with proper cellaring. — a day ago

Petit Verdot 2017

Deep purplish ruby. Beautiful nose of blue and black fruit. On the palate blueberry, blackberry, a little bell pepper. Medium plus bodied. Maybe a little too young - this will probably benefit from 2-3 years more cellaring. — 10 days ago

Dried flowers, cocoa, anise & black tea. A mediocre Petit Verdot but the palate was balanced & softer than I expected. — 16 days ago

Kahanov, Petit Verdot 2010.
Fabulous. A matured complex wine.
A garnet medium intense appearance(age is noticed), pronounced nose of black plum, earth and dried fruit. Balanced on the palate, tanins are still kicking,some acidity notes at the finish.

I thought this was a Tuscan wine.

Then! I thought it was from California.

Nope... it’s from Canada.

Produced 12km from my house.

Obviously we’ll crafted - have mostly really enjoyed these impressive Hall offerings. This Jack’s for whatever reason wasn’t as generous as some I’ve had. But I’ll keep after it. — 14 days ago
