Tasting Notes

Vinous 95

Bright ruby. Blackberry, dark red cherry and milk chocolate on the highly fragrant nose, with a candied violet quality and a hint of blueberry nectar adding complexity. The rich ripe nose speaks of the hot year. Then sweet but penetrating blackberry and herbal coffee flavors show impressive clarity and energy thanks to lively but harmonious acidity. Powerful but polished tannins add grip to the spicy, appealing creamy and very long finish. This knockout wine is opulent styled but not at all over the top. [Ian D’Agata, 09/01/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2023

Robert Parker 95+

Petrolo’s 2007 Galatrona (Merlot) is another of the successes of the vintage. It is a dark, seamless Galatrona packed with dark fruit, cassis, minerals and French oak. Despite the wine’s opulence and richness, the fruit retains considerable clarity as well as nuance. Today the French oak is a touch pronounced, but in a few years this dense, plush Merlot from impeccably-farmed hillside vineyards should be firing on all cylinders. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027.
