Petit Verdot

Michael David Winery (Michael & David Phillips)

Petite Petit Lodi Petite Sirah Petit Verdot 2016

Color of deep purple. Nose and f cocoa, chocolate, dark fruits, raisin, powerful tobacco leaves, and a bit rose note. Nose is plenty and powerful. Taste of dark cherry, sweet grapes, a bit too watery considering the note is powerful, mellow tannins, medicinal note, tobacco leaves, and a bit spice. Aftertaste is some more medicinal note, a bittersweet, and a bit cranberry. Above average. — 11 days ago

White Rock Vineyards

Napa Valley Claret Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

First time trying this producer but I’d say Christopher Vandendriessche has got something good going on. This BDX blend offers abundant notes of ripe cherries, plums, pencil shavings and eucalyptus on the nose with ample supply of spices, graphite, blackberries, raspberries, and dried herbs on the palate. Tannins still haven’t resolved themselves so it needs time to integrate; I’d say this has a few more years left before it’s peaked for optimal drinking. — 7 days ago

Las Veletas

Valle del Maule Petite Verdot Cabernet Franc 2014

Chilean Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc blend. One of the noticeable aspects is the smell of dark stewed plums and campfire smokiness. The other is the dark burgundy colour that is almost black. The wine has an amalgamation of flavours that hits you right off the first sip. Plums, black cherry, dark chocolate, espresso that are very well balanced together. This is followed by a very mild peppery spice, velvet and chewy leathery tannins that linger long after. Excellently structured. If you find it, buy it. — 12 days ago

Cortijo Los Aguilares

Tadeo Serranía de Ronda Petit Verdot 2014

Expressive nose with dark berries and balsamic notes. Good body and extremely sweet ripe tannins, all wrapped in a striking acidity. A ripe yet fresh expression of Petit Verdot — 14 days ago

Bodegas Ego

'Infinito' Monastrell Blend 2015

Color of shades of purple. Nose of dark fruits, like black and blueberry, vanilla sweetness, milk chocolate, and a bit spice. Taste of solid tannins, silky and mouthful, oaky and sweetness from vanilla and ripe black cherry, maybe a bit too sweet, spices and zest on 2nd wave, and a bit medicinal note. Tasty. Aftertaste is medium long, with warmth, more oak, more repetition from the tastes. Sip after sip. — 17 days ago

It’s definitely unique, but a top 3 PV in my opinion (alongside Jarvis & William Harrison).

Petit Verdot 2016

This is a solid 100% PV. Plenty of fruit and enough complexity that will puzzle you in to finding it hard to believe that it’s 100% petit Verdot. This paired wonderfully with bold chili, it would go nicely with any food with robust, rich flavors. I definitely recommend drinking with food. — 16 days ago
