To me, proper Petit Verdot smells like a cross between Syrah and Merlot. There is a smoked brisket component, black peppercorn and olive brine, but instead of being in the black and blue fruit camp we are more leaning towards red cherry and plum. The palate is concentrated, showing that red fruit and peppery meat balance. A wine for the acquired palate that is tired of fruity oak bombs. Decant after some bottle age, use a big glass, and serve with stronger cheeses or with grilled game.
