Aromas of blackberries and some toasted oak. Silky smooth flavors of dark berries and a little herbal spice. The oak is still a bit lively for me, but I think it will slowly fade away. Sweet and gripping tannins.

Don't recall ever seeing this one in the stores. $15? Might pick some up tomorrow. is there one rating for 4- but the avg is 4? ;-)

J2K - per your question, there is a little note on the page where you enter the actual rating on how the average is calc'd - to quote: ... "For example if someone rates a wine "3-" and someone else rates it "4" the average rating will still be 3.5. However when viewing individual ratings any "+" or "-" will be shown" In other words it would take a 3 or 3+ to now pull this Murphy-Goode below an avg of 4.00

Found it online, not sure what is left in the store. Tasted the 08 at the MG tasting room and this proves it ages well

For calculating the average rating, a "4-", "4", and "4+" all get a numerical value of "4.0". So one "3" rating and one "4" equal 3.5, and one "3-" and one "4" still equal "3.5."

I found some at the Shadyside store, picked up 2 bottles.

First single varietal Petite Verdot I've ever had. Very similiar to a Cabernet with the fruit flavors, good weight, and gripping tannins. But there is A LOT of oak and sweet vanilla especially as it breathed. Was getting overwhelming wood flavors later on. Still decent for $15.

I think the oak will chill out over the next few years, there seems to be enough fruit and structure to give it time.

Cherry, straw and a little earth on the nose. Oak, red berries, and vanilla on the palate. This is decent enough & a fairly well-made wine, and appropriately priced; however, just so-so for me. I’m not overly attracted to this grape as a single varietal.

If you don't dig this try to seek out other pv.

Will give it another go ecola, if I come across something else available.

Dark purple in color. Nose of black and dark red fruit, chocolate and spice. Got some licorice on the satisfying finish. Great mouth feel. Good value at $15 at the state monopoly store. Rated 90 on CT. DTQPR = 90.90

Drinking beautifully. Spice and blackberry. Not much of a finish, but a good wine. Anybody have any left?
