2018 Petit Verdot

2018 Petit Verdot

A classic expression of Petit Verdot with inviting aromas of blueberry, lavender, spice box, and hints of pencil shavings.  A dark core of berry fruit follows with dark cherry, bramble, hints of cola, sweet tobacco, and vanilla.  The palate has nice integrated tannins and a great structure with juicy mouthwatering acidity.

Back in my first visit to James Cole, I think it was probably 2007 or 2008?? Anyway, I remember the visit being a total afterthought on my way down the Silverado Trail. I popped in and noticed on the tasting menu a Petit Verdot offering. It was an immediate love affair. Subsequently I tried to purchase every bottle of James Cole Petit Verdot I could. I have been a wine club member ever since. The varietal then attracted me to everything the winery releases. Admittedly, I was disappointed when they decided not to produce PV anymore. Nonetheless I stuck with them and this iteration, in my opinion, is simply outstanding. Classic, classic Petit Verdot! I did “menu” my bottle. For me the initial nose was floral. Violet perhaps, full and rich. The mouth feel was equally as rich. With blackberry and some sweetness…perhaps dark cherry. This Petit Verdot must have been aged in oak for a bit because it is simply super, super smooth. To make a long story short, my love affair continues! Thank you, James Cole, for re-introducing this varietal in your arsenal!! Cheers!! This is a must purchase for any lover of great wine making.
