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.

: 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
