Pirramimma 2005 Petit Verdot - 91 pts

Pirramimma 2005 Petit Verdot (McClaren Vale) Australia.

Decanted: 1 hr

Cost: $29.99

Date Tasted: August 206, 2009

Tasting Notes: This is a beautiful Australian wine. It is opaque and concentrated. The nose is cedar and deep blackberries that continue onto the palate with a full-bodied mouth-feel. The finish had hints of spice and lasted forever.

I highly recommend this wine. An interesting note was when Icon Wines did a tasting with John Glaetzer at a local wine retailer he mentioned that Pirramimma makes a good petit verdot. He wasn't kidding. This is a powerhouse. At that price folks should be stockpiling!! HC
