Petit Verdot 2013
Whoa. Just, whoa. One could be excused for being dumbfounded upon their first encounter with Petit Verdot. This wine grips the senses with a big, hairy fist and doesn’t let go. Aromatic strands of pencil shavings, cedar, and tobacco are tightly knotted with a healthy dose of smoked meat and a fruit profile that is jet-black. The structure of the mouth is built upon a solid framework of rigid tannins which are restrained by enough fruit and acid to prevent it from being overly aggressive. Drink now to relive your youthful audacity or cellar for a few years to reflect your mature refinement.
