2011 Canoas Petit Verdot

San Juan, Argentina
12.4% alc.
$5 at Oakland, CA (purchased 1/10/14)

CaronesI was recently in the Bay Area visiting family and met up with BW at the Oakland store. We perused the store and I got to buy some wines that have been reviewed but not seen in WA. This was a new one and we agreed it looked interesting and BW graciously let me pick it up to try.

I pulled a tight plastic cork. The color was a medium dark red where I was expecting a more purple color from a petit verdot. Red fruits and tart cider on the nose. Very light on the palate with red fruits and little substance with a bit of tartness in the finish. This one did nothing for me and I have to give it a thumbs down and a big pass. Sorry for the lousy picture.

    Thanks Bin5 for another great review. Love when you find a gem and we can benefit from your recommendations but just as good to know when we should pass.
