    July 13, 2020 - Ripe and bold dark plum, blackberry fruit. Violet/floral character of PV really shines in the aromas. Ripe tannins, and chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla extract oak influence. Well made, but underwhelming New World styled wine. I'm sure there will be bigger fans of this than me.

    February 8, 2019 - 2018 Colorado Governor's Cup Wines: Bold purple color. Nose shows dark and concentrated elements of black cherries and currants, topped in pepper, leather, magic marker and charcoal. Grippy, concentrated and dark on the palate but the acidity is surprisingly vibrant. A core of tart dark currant and plum fruit blends well with smoky charcoal, mesquite-grilled beef, pen ink, dark chocolate. This could use some years in the cellar to unwind, but a well-done and interesting take on this variety.
