2017 Petit Verdot Select


Categories: ,


I find that Petit Verdot on the nose makes me think of a cross between Syrah and Merlot. The fruit is Merlot, but there is a meatiness there without the black pepper. Stewed black cherry and raspberry, smoked meat, violets, and a healthy dose of baking spice from the time in oak. The palate is concentrated, balanced, ripe yet fresh. There is a lot going on and each component contributes equally. This is being released in time for grilling season; fire-roasted things would work well with this wine
