  • Jefferson Vineyards Meritage 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I'd never guess this Bordeaux-style blend is heavy on the Petit Verdot. It's a little on the light, sweet side for a Meritage -- I'd actually like it best alongside chocolate for dessert. Very pure fruit flavors. 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
