Petite Verdot


Mosaic Merlot Blend 2016

Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here's a delicious one from Israel.

Inky in color with a short reddish/brick rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, black plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, light cedar, spices, cola, tobacco leaf, black tea, alcohol, coffee, milk chocolates, light herbs and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cooked plums, black currants, coffee, cedar, vanilla, spices, earth, milk chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn and light vinaigrette.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a wonderful Merlot blend from Israel. Showing nice complexity and well balanced with a great mouthfeel. Really enjoyed the nose here, even after a few minutes out of the bottle.

This four year old is already yummy right out of the bottle, but better after a couple of hours in a decanter.

I've had this before, and this time I decided to give it a slight chill, and boy it was delicious.

Nice buttery mouthfeel, even looks buttery when poured. Drinking very nicely now.

Very tasty and fruit forward. Dark, extracted and rich. Feels like a Napa Bordeaux blend.

A blend of 42% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit verdot and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels. Unfiltered and Kosher. Mevushal.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Library Vineyard Petite Syrah 2016

One of of my favorite vineyards in CA and a gem in Turley’s portfolio. Spanning 1890s to 1900s plantation of some very unique varietals, this always has a signature to it that I don’t always find in field blends. Rich in body while always maintaining beautiful texture and liveliness. Aromatics are always unique and compelling in their own right. I used to think this would be best at 10-15 year mark but the more I try it I think this site drinks its best at the 3-5 year mark from vintage. — 4 days ago

Mendocino Petite Sirah 2015

Inky purple. Decanted two hours, and almost ready to drink. Black currant and thyme aromas. Tannin-laden, lactic and mineral finish, with blackberry and a hint of cherry and butter in the mouth. Old school Italian-immigrant NorCal petit sirah here. You want American heritage? This is it, pilgrims... 24 hours later, there’s still tannins galore, but the fruit is fading. Drink up — 6 days ago
