Intense blackberry aromas blend with traces of vanillin oak and leather, yet give little indication of the opulent treat that follows. The creamy, luscious entry fills the palate with flavors of ripe dark berries, cherry, plum, and coffee. As the wine reveals its layers, traces of dark cocoa, espresso, lavender, sage, and spice notes appear. In the lingering finish find hints of hazelnut and mocha. Complex and expansive, this Petit Verdot delivers a full measure of satisfaction and more. Alc. 14.4%
