  • 2010 Veritas Vineyard Petit Verdot Paul Shaffer 4th Edition Monticello – USA, Virginia, Central Virginia, Monticello (10/27/2018)
    WIMLNR (forgot)

    Tasted double blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of dirty baby diaper and bell pepper. Light palate of simple berries and cherries. Medium acidity, drying tannin, medium body. Drink now.

    This is definitely the trick wine in this Halloween Trick or Treat double blind wine tasting.

    My guess was this is a recent vintage of a Texas Hill Country Cabernet Franc. Not too bad a guess I guess since both Virginia and Texas versus Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are all outliers so to speak.

    Tasted non-blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of thistle, boysenberry, violets and pepper. Flavors of cassis, boysenberry and plum. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    Bottled under screw cap. 12 years old. Hasn’t suffered at all due to the screw cap in my opinion. (93 points)
