Late to ripen, this Bordeaux variety is usually one of the last we harvest and the wine is stained inky black almost immediately. Rarely bottled on its own, this small-lot wine demonstrates the herbal, floral, gravelly, brambly enigma of Petit Verdot.
This wine is dense and lively with notes of violet, plum, and a hint of jasmine. Bright on the palate, juicy dark-fruit flavors are accented with notes of savory truffles and black pepper. The seamless layers and round tannins lead to a long, enduring finish.
