Petit Verdot

2017 Petit Verdot Tasting Note

This is a full-bodied and heavy tannin wine with aromas of cigar box and black cherry. Flavors of licorice, blueberry and a hint of olive, the wine has a bright acid that balances with the tannins. There is a lingering finish of cedar, bitter chocolate and dried cranberry.
