The 2019 Petit Verdot features aromas
of black cherry and plum combined with hints of wet slate and tobacco.
The palate is rich upon entry, with
flavors of blueberry, currants, and baking spices. The
powerful mid-palate segues into a velvety finish balanced in tannins and complimented by a touch of caramel from the new French oak.
