Smooth and velvety with ripe plum and blackberry fruit; spicy and dense with good structure and a long, balanced finish.


tasting notes

Full bodied and very dark color to this Petit Verdot, with aromas of cigar box and Van cherry lead into rich structure that is leather and spice forward. Drying tannins linger with sweet toasty oak and a hint of black olive.
