  • Crosskeys Vineyards Petit Verdot 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very inky - almost black in color. Nice jammy nose with cherry, raspberry, and strawberry notes. Focused, but very well integrated. Full bodied with chewy tannins. Kick of white pepper on finish. Read More

  • Wisdom Oak Winery Petit Verdot 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Well fruited nose - I get the impression of cherry pie. Far too light bodied and way way way too acidic, as I've found many of Wisdom Oak's wines to be. Flavor absolutely vanishes on the finish. Blech. Read More

  • Cooper Vineyards Reserve Petit Verdot 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Inky color. Softly aromatic with notes of blueberry and earth. Nicely subtle palate. A refined take on a robust varietal. Finish is a bit unbalanced with a little too much acidity and not quite enough tannin. Very fruity. Read More

  • King Family Vineyards Petit Verdot 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly fruity nose, lots of raspberry. Silky tannins build to a strong finish full of bright red fruit. Read More

  • Jefferson Vineyards Petit Verdot 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Deep garnet color. Rich, jammy nose with cherry and blackberry notes. Very fruit forward with a subtle pepper character. More prominent spice on the palate intensifying towards a juicy finish. Edgy but structured. Yum! Read More

  • Well, we've been catching up on a lot of things on our return to the Inland Empire.Let me add this to OT's report on the VA wines.  I found that, consistently, the VA wines do not "slap you in the face with fruit."  So, often, California wines are "cherry" or "blackberry" or "grapefruit."   There were only two wines in the VA tastings that did t...

  • Yeah, I have to agree with Foxall... I see a lot of Viognier- but I don't shop at the market for my wine either, so that may skew the data..  Paso Robles makes a lot of Viognier, as does some of the SCM wineries, other central coast areas, and even in Oakland (Rockwall makes a viognier).  But I do agree with OT about the quality of most Viognier...

  • Sonoma doesn't have a ton, but many Central Coast wineries make it as a stand alone (which is what they do in France, where it's from, y'know).  Calera, Melville, Au Bon Climat, Roar, Jaffurs all do one and Qupe does a few.  Then there's Bonterra in Mendo, Cristom in OR, Darioush and Joseph Phelps in Napa. K&L has a bunch more. I saw another hal... Read More

  • Lovingston Winery Pinotage 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A lighter version of this traditionally South African grape. Rich and earthy with vibrant cherry notes and a light grip on the finish. Read More

  • R. Cabernet Franc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Ghostly nose. Okay balance, but not impressive. Read More
