Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Petit Verdot opens with a wet stone and plum bouquet with hints of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slight astringent, thick and lush. The flavor profile is mineral and oak influenced juicy plum with notes of Earl grey tea. The finish is dry and its very dry flinty tannins are long lasting and linger. The Panel suggested pairing this Petit Verdot with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The inviting combination of the inky purple hue and aromatics of lush ripe berries with traces of floral and oak makes this wine too tempting not to sip. And when you do, you won’t be disappointed. The dark blend of blackberry, cherry and huckleberry seamlessly merges with traces of chocolate, espresso and herbs de Provence with a kiss of lavender. The bright, juicy flavors and integrated structure showcase this sophisticated varietal. Pair with ing of saltimbocca alla Romana, or grilled shish kabobs
