Petit Verdot is a thick-skinned grape expressing a dense, deep ruby color. Aromas are dark and brooding, with blackberry, black cherry, fig, mocha, dried herbs, and savory truffles. Oak barrels contribute a caramel and toasted marshmallow nuance, along with some baking spices. The entry is juicy, with mouthwatering acidity. A rich midpalate leads to flavors of dark plum, black cherry, mocha, coffee, and dark chocolate. Ripe, pronounced tannins are present from start to finish.
