Petit Verdot 2013

'Tis a rare thing to see this grape out and about on its own, but when it happens, it sure is a thing of beauty.  There isn't much to go around, so we'll just keep it to ourselves.....

This is a dry, medium bodied red with notes of violets, black fruit and blackberries on the nose.  The palate follows the nose and also displays some notes of licorice.

In comparison to previous vintages, this petit verdot is more supple and generous; the intensity of the tannin and acidity is tempered by characteristics of ripe fruit attributable to the excellent growing season.  This soft quality does nothing to detract from the long finish of the wine.

While approachable currently, this wine will benefit for up to seven years of aging.  Your patience will be richly rewarded with the development of secondary characteristics of bottle age such as licorice, graphite, sweet beetroot and leather.
