August 17, 2009 Weekly Wine Pick – Yard Dog

  1. Category:  Juicy
  2. Wine Type:  55% Petit Verdot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot
  3. Country:  Australian
  4. Price: $13
  5. Notes:  The Yard dog is out and it’s making noise.  This $13 screw cap bottle has an intense bouquet of blackberry and plums.  At the first inhale, the berries and spice came through quickly, but this blend of Petit Verdot (55%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), and Merlot (15%) had so much more to offer after sitting for about 20 minutes.  To the palate it was soft and juicy with absolutely no tannins present and after breathing for a bit, the hearty Merlot flavors and musky plum followed.
