Tried the Pollak 2008 Petit Verdot amidst some poignantly competitive company and it came out, to me at least, as the winner. There were other blends, "Meritages", and individual varietals that were both unique as well as performing at a high level- but it was the 2008 Pollak Petit Verdot that crossed that finish line as smooth as silk and ahead of everyone else in Mr. Jefferson's back yard. The nose is dense and concentrated, but inviting. It's when the wine reaches the palate and finds that sweet spot between one's cheeks and ears that this wine unfolds into a beautifully rich, structured, and complex animal that is a joy just to swirl. The finish is the best of it all- smooth and spice-box saturated I found myself gumming up and down, getting the very most out of the wine that was possible. If you need an example that Petit Verdot can stand on its own and become an integral thread in the tapestry that is shaping up to be the new Virginian style of wine making- you could do a lot worse than to try this example from Pollak Vineyards... in an "off" year. Their 2007 Meritage was also jammin. FYI.
