Petit Verdot

L'Aventure

Estate Paso Robles Rosé Blend 2019

Last three years this had been my fav domestic rose. Light salmon pink... but nice Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre blend. Nice weight on the palate... strawberry, rhubarb, cranberry, watermelon bites... juicy, dry, balanced. I have been pretty well over rose the past couple years... but I really find this one head and shoulders above most. Bravo Stephen Assao...I value your wines, your vision, your passion. — 2 days ago

Quintessa

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Celebrating getting back together with friends after shelter at home with a 1997 Quintessa cab. Cork was spongy, but the Durand was able to pull in one piece. On open, I was sure the wine was done as was quite reddish brown and it smelled a bit vinegary. About 40 minutes of air was all it needed to open up. Soft fruit nose with a savory mid-palate of tobacco and leather. Nice finish. #quintessa — 5 days ago

Pretty strong tannins. Still good acidity 9 years in. Improved quite a bit after breathing. — 3 days ago

Château La Lagune

Mademoiselle L Haut-Médoc Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

2015 vintage. For those who didn't know that Bordeaux can be sexy, try this. The fruit is much thicker than you'd expect, the tannins are present but well-tamed and there's an interesting minerality in the finish. Very straightforward, but what it lacks in complexity it compensates with charm. Abv. 14%. — 4 days ago

Isenhower Cellars

Jongleur Petit Verdot 2016

Dense, inky purple, highly extracted pigment. Black currant and butter aromas with a hint of spearmint. Blackberry and spearmint flavors, some cherry and violet-floral on finish. Smooth mouthfeel, chalky tannins on initial pour. Moderate skin astringency, some lingering seed bitterness alongside those lingering fruit flavors. Restrained acidity but nicely balanced between varietal flavor profile and tannic structure. Mild barrel character emerges after two hours — 25 days ago

Colgin

Cariad Napa Valley Red Blend 2016

Every bit dazzling even at the four year mark, the 2016 Colgin ‘Cariad’ Red Wine (WWB, 97) is a massively dense wine that embodies tremendous verve and shows a seamless texture. Every working part of this wine (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot) creates not only complexity but a harmonious effect once on the palate. You are greeted immediately with the pillowy mouthfeel upon the attack. Layers of dark currants, tobacco leaf, red bell pepper, anise and chocolate cake all come together marvelously on the palate. This beautiful wine is delightfully hedonistic now but will cellar well for decades to come. If enjoying in its youth, be sure to give this beauty at least a two hour decant, as the wine evolved considerably after extensive air time. Drink 2022-2040- 97 — 2 days ago
