Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Petit Verdot from Estate 1856 is very good. It opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with a hint of plum and root beer. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, concentrated and smooth. The flavor profile is a stewed plum with notes of boysenberry. We also detected hints of dark chocolate and cola. The finish is chewy and its moderate dusty tannins linger nicely. The Panel suggested drinking this wine on its own. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Intense blackberry aromas blend with traces of vanillin oak and leather. The creamy, luscious entry fills the palate with flavors of ripe dark berries, cherry, plum, and coffee. As the wine reveals its layers, traces of dark cocoa, espresso, lavender, sage, and spice notes appear. In the lingering finish find hints of hazelnut and mocha. Complex and expansive, this Petit Verdot delivers a full measure of satisfaction. Pair with lamb shish kabob.
