2019 Petit Verdot, St. Helena
This Petit Verdot is like experiencing the dark side…with concentrated, full-bodied flavors. It is extraordinarily balanced with aromas of mixed berries, sugared plums, cocoa dust, and an almost sanguine touch to it. Its palate exudes flavors of black cherries, earth, licorice, cherry cola, dark chocolate, and toasted brioche. Its powerful chalky tannin mouthfeel truly lets you know THIS is Petit Verdot. This wine shall be enjoyable now but will continue to evolve through 2032 and perhaps beyond.
