    Oddly enough, Petit Verdot has always been the "sleeper" varietal for this property. There is a fine bouquet with cedar, pencil lead, dark plum, red currant, pomegranate, some high-toned floral notes, tobacco leaf and a hint of dark chocolate. On the palate there is moderate acidity with fine-grained tannins and very good length. Very cool wine, and a steal at $15.

    I don't get a chance to taste much pure Petit Verdot but when I do I sometimes find them overly extracted or having very high tannin levels. This wine isn't anything like that; I really enjoyed this wine’s character; deep flavors flowing into a bold, lush palate presence where those powerful flavors seemed to accumulate into one big bass drum pounding a thick, rich and pleasing mouth-feel. Definitely a BBQ wine and for the price this is really worth checking out.

    Potentially my favorite of the 04 Pirriamimma bottles. This wine shows that not only is Petit Verdot a very useful blending component but that it can also stand alone and make very compelling wine. This shows tons of fresh tobacco, crushed mint, cigar box and small berry forest fruits. The tannin structure is beautifully developed at ten years of age but retains ample grip to tease out the wine long on the palate. Excellent persistence and brightness for a wine of this age especially when you consider our fantastic pricing on this bottle! Any Bordeaux lover will appreciate this wine and the price is very hard to beat!
    Top Value!
