My last wine review was for the very interesting 2009 John Galt Proprietary Red. Like that one, the 2008 Sodaro Petit Verdot comes from Bounty Hunter Wines. Note the hand-written lot number:
This is a very dry wine--very dry--with a medium body and excellent nose. Petit Verdots are not very common as stand alones; the grapes are more often used in blends. However, when done well I am told they can be exceptional. The Sodaro certainly was in the ballpark. It was a bit too complex for my palate, but the taste was superb, especially for a medium body wine. The fruit flavors were dark--raspberry/blackberry--and there was a barely perceptible oak flavor. The finish was smooth and long. Highly recommended, if you can find a bottle.
Cheers, all. *hic*
