St. Somewhere 2010 Petit Verdot

After the Facts:

1. I forgot to give this one a score on video.  Check out the Rad Wine Reviews page to see what I gave this one.

2. The wine worked great with the pasta.  Big cranberry notes came out of nowhere.

Stay Rad,

Jeff

    Whenever I want wine, on my budget, I always stick with a dry California red. I’m usually happy even if I only have 2 buck chuck or if I’m rich and spend $20 😉 I must try me a Petit Verdot!

      Esther, do me a favor. Stay away from the $2.49 Chuck for a year. Try anything else. You’ll never want to go back.
      And if you do… I’ll buy you a case.

    I can recommend the Columbia Crest Two Vines Shiraz 2008 for a weekday wine. You might like this enjoyable and complex wine for less than 10 bucks. Has lots of dark fruits on both the nose and the palate. On the other hand, it’s a bit overoaked (but they used high quality French and American barrels: attractive cinnamon, nutmeg and tobacco) and it’s not a very typical Shiraz (could be a bit more peppery). But you can’t have very high expectations in this price range, can you. It also has some Viognier (4%) and Merlot (3%) blended in. I’m not sure you can still get the 2008 (the 2009 has no Viognier but does have some Cabernet Sauvignon).

    I just picked up a bottle of the St. Somewhere from Trader Joe’s on Masonic in SF. Another great Petit Verdot that I like is from Terra Savia Vineyards in Mendocino. I find it at small neighborhood grocers like Other Avenues on Judah, also in SF.
