Wine Review: I really like Petit Verdot varietal wines when done well. This one from Truchard is a winner and a crowd pleaser. It’s a shame that there are only 140 cases. It is opaque and very dark purple colored wine opens with a fragrant blackberry and blueberry bouquet with a hint of mild oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very smooth. The flavor profile is a mild blackberry with notes of gentle black currant and oak. It also detected a touch of strawberry mixed in as well. This complex Petit Verdot finishes dry and its fine tannins are food friendly. I would pair this wine with a Ruth's Chris New York Strip Steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A complex nose of violet, cranberry, and red currants; with hints of cedar and vanilla. The mouth is layered with bright flavors of plum jam, black cherry, and cassis. Round tannins fill out the palate and provide a long finish of fruit and spice.

Organic status: not organic
