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


tasting notes

Beautiful aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, black fruit and hints of tanned leather underscore a weighty wine backed with fine, chalky tannins. Enjoy this bold Petit Verdot with any type of wild game (such as goat or venison) or simply pair with a cigar, post-dinner, around the fire.
