    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.

    October 14, 2012 - Pop and Pour. Inky, opaque, dark violet. A whiff of something mildy unpleasant - is it brett? - and not much else on the nose. A distinct note of pencil lead, some dark fruit, and substantial tannins on the palate. Medium finish. Will let this get some air and try it again tomorrow, but I suspect it's probably going to be better a couple of years from now. **update** An hour later, this wine has opened up considerably, and the unpleasant nose has completely blown off. Updating score from 85 to 89.

    August 26, 2012 - Still exceptional; warm with licorice and dark chocolate and a clean finish with just a hint of tartness that we love.
