Full-bodied with a good grip on the palate, so decant 1-2 hours. This organic wine offers aromas and flavours of dark fruit and toasty oak. Great price for the quality.

Great value, lots of spice and dark fruit. Tannins bold and beautiful - Great with grilled steak!
Lori rated this wine as 89/100
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Emiliana Novas Petit Verdot, an organic wine, has intense aromas of yogurty black cherry, vanilla and notable wood. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine; disconnected with good acidity, grippy/tight tannins (decant for 1+ hours) and a medium to long, smooth, overoaked finish. It is a food friendly, savory wine; it will benefit from cellaring for couple of years; drink 2016-2020. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted Jan/14.

See my wine recommendations readily available at the LCBO here:

: This flavourful Syrah packs a wallop and offers excellent value. Brimming with blackberry fruit, smoked meat and sweet spices, with a nice pure core of dark fruit and big, muscular tannins. Cellar for 1-2 years or decant and enjoy. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, July 2013

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
