Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Petit Verdot opens with a violet and barnyard bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and approachable for a Petit Verdot. The flavor profile is stewed black plum and gentle cinnamon blend notes black cherry, stony minerality, and blueberry. We also detected hints of oak and herbal tea in the mix. The finish is dry and its flavors and chewy tannins build-up and stick around for quite some time. The Tasting Panel would decant this Virginia Petit Verdot for a bit, before pairing it with duck confit. Enjoy – Ken & Mark

Winemaker Notes: This is Petit Verdot at its finest. Initially there are dates, figs, and plums which give way to blueberry, dark cherry, and blackberry. The fruits are enveloped in dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Next to the dark chocolate covered fruits is a lovely floral and fresh herb nuance. The oak comes through just enough to balance out the bold fruits. The tannins are firm yet approachable. All these attributes create a finish that is expressive, bold, and well-integrated. This is my favorite Petit Verdot to date.
