Friday night pizza and movie wine, and it's perfect! Good acidity, solid tannin, well-balanced for just over 14% alcohol. I'm loving NW wines from 2013!

Dense and savory with black fruits, musk, spice, leather. Loads of tannin and high acidity but enough fruit to carry the structure.

A good amount of violet lavender floral notes. Very forward with coco and spice notes. A good amount of raspberry and blueberry fruit a bit of tannins on the finish but has lots of juicy fruit and notes if spice. Finish 45+ excellent+

Very nice right now. Berry nose, hint of chocolate and something else I can’t put my finger on. Well rounded for a Petit Verdot, nice and smooth once open for a bit. Nicely done.

I like it. It's different. Can't quite put into words how. Definitely needed decanting.

My BIL introduced me to this -Petit Verdot is a first for me. Lovely wine! Great start, middle and finish. Definitely recommend for those who enjoy medium-bodied wines (although let's be honest - tastes more full-bodied to me)!

Had this wine with herb crusted lamb chops and it was over the top spectacular.

This is the 2007. Lovely vanilla on then nose along with red and black fruits, cedar, and nutmeg. Palate is rich with a lovely velvetyness after its had a chance to breathe for a bit. There's a touch of licorice and plum on the palate too. Pleasant medium finish.
