Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Petite Verdot based blend opens with a fragrant black currant and plum bouquet with a hint of dark chocolate. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild black currant and plum blend with notes of boysenberry. I also detected hints of minerality and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. This wine would pair well with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The prized Petit Verdot from Block 4 has yielded a big robust wine, with bold tannins and dark, concentrated fruit. The nose offers enticing aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant, with just a hint of leather and herbes de Provence. On the palate, firm tannins and toasty oak frame luxurious blackberry jam and blueberry flavors that glide to a long, intense finish.
