February 13, 2016 - A buried cellar treat. Most lush petit Verdot i have tasted- a Ty twist. Has Syrah influences. After a couple of hours starts to flatten out. Drink now.

March 4, 2015 - Cork had significant crystals on bottom, and there was a fair amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. This has mellowed considerably since my last vist - tannins are now fully integrated. But the result is not terribly interesting... a nicely balanced wine without a lot of expressiveness or character. Not gonna get any better either, so drink up!

July 28, 2014 - Less grip than first bottle. Personally enjoyed this a little younger, but still a neat wine.

November 26, 2013 - Purple black, opaque. Nose is delicious. Smoke, dark fruit, some sweet baking spice. Similar to what I like in Cali Syrah nose. Wine weighs heavy in the mouth. Prunes, fig, some herbal notes, pumpkin pie, grass clippings? Great acid zing, heavy tannic tongue.
Great structure, everything is in balance, just big. This is my first foray into pv as a single varietal. Big and expressive.

January 22, 2013 - Petite Verdot is one of my favorite varietals and Ty Caton does it extremely well. A bit high in alcohol - 15.3%. But this has great fruit and nice acid/tannins that integrate very well. Tasting great right now.
