Emersão Petit Verdot 2019

Color: Deep ruby
Nose: primary; black plum, black cherry, blackberry and violet. Tertiary; smoked oak, vanilla and leather.
Mouth: dry, medium high acidity, high and soft tannins, medium alcohol, full bodied, high intensity and long finish with flavors of black cherry and black pepper.

Tertiary flavors are subtle, so it could be more complex. It's a great Brazilian wine, that shows the evolution of out wines.

Daou Vineyards

Soul Of A Lion Adelaida District Red Blend 2019

The wine is very dark, so inky that light does not pass through it. The nose is fresh, riddled with black and blue berries, clove, cinnamon and cedar. On the palate, the rich fruit is out front with a savory backbeat trailing behind. The tannins are firm, while the finish is long and extremely tasty. — 11 days ago

Oliviero Toscani

Toscana Syrah Blend 2012

Interesting Tuscan blend of Syrah (50%), Cabernet Franc (35%) and Petite Verdot (15%). Dark (almost purple) color. Aromas and flavors of dark berries/currants with hints of dried herbs, white pepper and a hint of dark chocolate on the medium finish. Lots of mouth watering acidity. Moderate tannins. Solid value. Something a bit different. Thank you for sharing Keith S. — 15 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Vigna d'Alceo Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Blend 1997

Black cherry and cassis, pencil shavings, balsamic notes, polished furniture.
Still a touch of tannic grip, wonderful freshness and acidic bite, this is a regal example of CS, and drinking perfectly now.

Laïka Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Vibrant, juicy, so fresh, alive!
Green apples, green grass, a hint of green apricot, some lemongrass. Highly enticing. Not flint like Sancerre, no exotic canned fruit like NZ. Fresh, green, grassy.
On the palate this has a round, slightly creamy mouthfeel but remains focused, light, appley juicy, vibrant. A slightly herby, salty bitter edge adds an interesting edge and a bit of nice complexity.
Closer to a Chenin Blanc (think Guiberteau) than a typical SB.
Slightly cloudy, incredibly drinkable.
This is a delightful discovery!
