(2009 Vintage) The 2009 vintage of POV has elegant aromas and flavors of dark plum and cherry fruit backed by complex savory notes of olives, dried herbs and hints of earthy leaves of tobacco or tea. The tannins are firm yet supple, suggesting optimally ripened fruit that offer a nice weight on the mid palate, assuring this wine will be a crowd pleaser at the dinner table.
(2009 Vintage) The color is a high-gloss, deep, ruby-tinged purple, nearly opaque at its core. Dense and intense aromas escape the glass, and elicit an immediate Pavlovian response with suggestions of ripe plums and blueberries. But oh, there is so much more: a blast of wild fennel, a dash of vanilla, a touch of violet! The aromas find substance with a sip, resplendent on the luxurious, high thread count texture woven by dense, ripe tannins.
