Oak Grove Petite Sirah, The Best Of The Bottom Shelf In Video Review
(EMAILWIRE.COM, September 17, 2014 ) Los Angeles, CA -- Some young cheap wines can be very good if they are allowed to breathe long enough. but few people are willing to wait. But now waiting is no longer necessary. A wine's aging can now be accelerated with an infusion of oxygen in just under a minute and that requires an aerator.
In order to bring useful information to the consumer, Freeman Productions has created a video series, The Best of The Bottom Shelf.
In this series Wine Best Cheap Wine Evaluated, Petite Sirah reviews are being done with an aerator to find out which wines increase in flavor and aroma. With this information, a consumer can select wines that have a hidden quality while avoiding others.
"Most wine lovers know that wine aerators work", explains the president Leny Freeman, "The important question is, "Which wines respond best to aeration? It's best to start with a wine that has all the elements of a good wine except maturity. That's where you get the best improvement."
The test subject of the latest video is a 2012 Oak Grove Petite Sirah. The wine was on special for $5.99, discounted from the retail price of $10.99. The aerator used was the Arome Du Vin, by Freeman Productions.
On the initial pour the Oak Grove Petite Sirah was surprisingly soft on the nose and only produced a mild puckering in the mouth. It started off with an excellent nose, very smooth with no sharpness in the aroma. Slight puckering in the mouth on the initial taste but nothing alarming. This wine did not need much aeration due right out of the bottle.
One pour was done through the Arome Du Vin where the aroma softened even more and the taste was even smoother with a slight flavor of chocolate covered raisins and blackberry. At this point it was considered every bit as good as a top shelf Sirah.
A second pour thru the aerator was done and, as expected, the second pour was not good for the wine. The aroma had disappeared and the flavor diminished considerably.
A standard quality control procedure is to take a test subject too far to see where it "breaks". "You can think in terms of an 'Oxygen Window'", explains Freeman, "Too little oxygen and the wine is harsh, too much and it's ruined. You need to catch it in between. Young wines need more oxygen than mature wines, just don't overdo it."
The testers opinion was that the Oak Grove 2012 Petite Sirah was worth more than $10.99.
The 2012 Oak Grove Petite Sirah should only be run once through the aerator if at all, and that would only save 15 minutes of breathing time. A second pass through was not recommended.
At some point in all tests, a wine will pass its point of perfection and begin to diminish. That point is noted for the viewer.
In each video viewers learn:
1. The number of pours through the aerator the wine needs to reach its potential.
2. The tester's opinion of the wine's value after improvement.
3. An invitation to request a specific wine review.
4. A link to purchase their own Arome Du Vin wine aerator.
