94 • Jarvis 2008 Estate Grown, Cave Fermented, Petit Verdot, Napa Valley $80.
Dark purple black color. Rich aromas of huckleberries, mulberries, and dried currants with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a polished, craisin, plum pit, cedar, and mineral finish. Rather like a reserved claret style zinfandel. (tasted on Feb-27-2012)
91 • Tomasello 2007 Petit Verdot, Outer Coastal Plain $25.
Deep garnet black. Aromas of tomato vine, soy, cranberry and pork rind with a supple, dryish medium body and a thyme, pepper, ink and lavender accented finish with fine tannins. A rustic, unique and fun table wine; try with goulash. (tasted on Feb-27-2012)
89 • Lynfred 2008 Petit Verdot, American $25.25.
Attractive aromas of huckleberry pie, clay, and vanilla mint fudge with a silky fruity-yet-dry medium body and polished, grilled pear and spice accented finish. (tasted on Feb-27-2012)
