Petit Verdot

Stone's Throw of Door County

Ballentine Vineyard Petite Verdot 2013


Revisiting this after 4yrs and it is coming along nicely: the color is unreal - just inky as heck w/intense concentration & stuffing. Similar profile w/improved structure. Russ Turco brings in grapes from Napa & makes wine in Door County, WI. Solid array of wines — 21 days ago

Infinito Monastrell Blend 2016

Blend of primarily Monastrell with some Syrah, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense and ripe berry and plum aromas. Blackberry fruit flavors with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Touch of graphite and herbs on the complex finish. A very busy and bold wine! — 5 days ago

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Joseph Phelps Insignia 2008: Bold. Rich. Stunning. Velvety black fruits. Mocha. Eucalyptus. Leather. Consisting of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot & 4% Merlot, this was the perfect 1.5L of pure liquid greatness. What better way to celebrate two milestone events but with this extremely special bottle. Simply the finest Napa Valley Bordeaux-style blend ever! Happy Birthday mom & Happy belated 50th Anniversary!

Gran Ricardo Valle de Guadalupe Red Blend 2018

Excellente!! When in Mexico, must have MX wines! For those who haven’t experienced some of the MX wines, please try them. Dark red fruit with berry Intensity that brings up jam and simply juicy deliciousness to mind. Slight spice, pepper and cinnamon on the nose and a medium long finish. Yes, this is a bit young and I would expect this to get even better with a few years on the rack. — 8 days ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Had to try one of these. Obviously young and will need another 5-10 years to hit its stride. But drinking very enjoyably now. Perfectly ripe red fruit with hints of blue and black. Tannins and acidity still strong. Best to aerate for a couple hours. But wow what a long finish. — 13 days ago

282 IX Estate Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

What a gift to be able to do a wine comparison. This Colgin is a bright dark ruby garnet color and a big nose filled with cherry-raspberry fruit musky scents of sandalwood, cedar, leather spice, stewed meat, eucalyptus and vanilla. A rich soft taste and full body flavors. Plum and dark berries hit the palate with pepper spices, mocha vanilla and a glycerine burn. Long finish of espresso chocolate, meats and tobacco giving an elegant feel and sophistication. Excited to see how it changes throughout the evening. A fav for sure! — 10 days ago
