Inky is the word most commonly associated with Petit Verdot. This dark and mysterious wine has a lot going on, but it?s a quiet kind of power. Bing and black cherries with floral tobacco and cedar are the first notes that jump out. More dark fruits - mulberry, black plum and heavy herbs - fried sage, black pepper and toasty vanilla. The alcohol is assertive and the tannins are very grippy, but it all feels in tune. If this wine were a person, it would be a very beefy body guard in an expensive suit. Yum!
