2015 Reserve Petit Verdot

$55.00

On the palate, the wine is bold, lush, full-bodied, and floral, with plentiful velvety tannins and well-balanced acidity. The very long finish extends the flavor profile with ripe plums, more lilacs and violets, sage, and a hint of minerality.

Description

2015 Petit Verdot Reserve

The dark, luminous color in the glass predicts the densely-packed aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and blueberry in this wine, which combine with the heady floral aromas of lilac, lavender and dried herb blossoms, supported by aromas of vanilla, roasted hazelnut, mocha, sage, and lightly-toasted oak.

2014 Petit Verdot Reserve

This is the first vintage of Petit Verdot that we have ever bottled on its own.  One sip, and you’ll know why.  This expressive wine fills the glass with aromas of violets, lilacs, eucalyptus, mint, green olives, roasted nuts, and vanilla.  It is dark, dense, and full bodied, with smooth tannins and mouth-filling acidity to match its boldness.

On the palate, flavors of blackberry, black cherry, and black currant are accented with the taste and texture of dark melted chocolate. The long finish persists, with flavors and aromas of dark ripe fruit.
