Here is TN by Mr Alfert on the 2012 PV:

Petit Verdot is quirky. Finicky, too, I think. Mainly a blending grape, one of the traditional Bordeaux varietals. You don’t see it much these days, but there are a couple of Bordeaux QPRs that have healthy dollops of it, like Chateau Bolaire at 40-50% and Belle-Vue at 20%. I like these two wines. Belle-Vue just released a 100% PV cuvee in 2016, need to try it.

For Bordeaux, it seems to add a more savory, spicy, and sometimes greenish tinge, to the blend.

I have not had a PV cuvee from California that I have enjoyed enough to buy more. I personally don’t think this grape does well in warmer climates like that, it gets too jammy blue for my palate.

And then here I try something from Humboldt. The land of Cabot. And it works. Works very well.

This Briceland PV runs the color spectrum: greens, red, blue and black. The spritely acids keep this wine racing along that continuum. Floral, perfumed nose, with some charcoal campfire and menthol notes. The palate is more than medium-body, definitely chewy, but not weighty. Savory, herbaceous, wet earth. Predominantly wild dark fruits, but with a slight sweetness of blueberry and some citrusy reds, showing lots of fruit complexity. Tangy, chewy, puckeringly-long long finish. A very distinct wine.

Started this wine with a grilled chicken salad, but damn would I love to have this wine with a burger or pizza. Or a Pittsburgh-style filet, all bloody and stuff.

I have no clue where his wine goes. I have no history with it. Has solid structure and backbone to it, and correctly ripe fruit, so I suspect it will age easily for 5+ and likely for much longer. Does it become more complex, I do not know. What I do know, is that this is one lip-smackingly good ‘Merican PV!

(93 pts.)

The 12 is long out of stock, but I pulled one bottle from my library for this auction. The other two vintages are still offered.

Any other questions about the wines I am happy to pitch in.

Shoot, now I feel guilty. My note will cause the pricing to go down!
