great
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Pirramimma Petit Verdot has intense aromas of cut hay, black currant, figs, subtle vanilla and cigar box. It is a full bodied, extra-dry, alcoholic, fruity to integrated wine, with forward acidity, refined tannins (decant starting from 30 min all the way to 2+ hours and watch it evolve) and a long, smooth and chalky finish. This wine has a mass-appeal, sip it or drink with smoked, BBQ’d or grilled foods; drink now - 2020 (screw cap). My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts - $5 off definitely makes this wine more attractive. Tasted May/13.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
