Napa Valley Petit Verdot 2013

9.2

Not too often do you get to drink 100% petit Verdot. My last bottle after 2-3 the last few years. Double decanted, then consumed from bottle over the course of 6hrs.

Special anniversary bottling. 36 months in oak. Right off the bat, I’d say the wine likely needed/benefitted from that amount of oak due to how brash PV can be solo, but I’d also say it’s probably going to cause the tannin to outlive the fruit. Not as black as I expected in the glass, more of a deep red-purple. Aromatics of ripe red and black berry fruits, baking spices, dark cocoa, and dark espresso. For being all PV slathered in a lot of oak, it’s very elegant on the palate…seems like a merlot/Mourvèdre hybrid with its black cherry cordial, chocolate and slightly smoked meat notes. There’s a unique tangy-ness to the fruit, and a lot of tannin at the finish. No rush, but if you want a good bit of fruit to balance things out, maybe consume in the next 3-5yrs.

@Dawn E. : You certainly don’t see PV on its own very often!

@Hugh O'Riordan : Same here. Their Simpatico is quite the value wine.

I’ve had many older vintages from Wm Fevre and after 15 years they start to fade but this bottle is perfection. Youthful green tinged color, green apple/lime nose, taut palate with just enough bottle age to add richness and roundness. — a year ago

Morrison Lane Syrah 2013

Deep ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with light wood, spices, coffee, dark chocolates, earth, tobacco leaf, violets, herbs and peppercorn.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

This is a delicious Syrah from Walla Walla Valley in Washington State. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy and rich.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime, when tannins show up. Gets earthier as it opens up with bitter vegetables and tar.

Even smoother after 2 hours of airtime. I did not decant it and left it in the bottle to open up.

Robert Parker 95 points.
Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

Fruit forward with good structure, and a beautiful aromatic nose.

I paired it with a delicious burger.

100% Syrah grapes were aged in 40% new oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$50.
