Dense black Currant with a hint of mineral and spice aromatics. It has a very natural deep color (don’t spill this one, bleach won’t help). Extremely concentrated with sharp focus. Currants and blueberries in the mouth with a somewhat stony minerality. Big structure and yet a polished wine with a complex finish.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: After 35+ years of winemaking, this is the very first Petit Verdot that I have bottled on its own. Always used in serious red blends but with the 2012, I saved a small lot to stand alone. Extremely limited to about 60 cases, our wine club members get the first opportunity at it, the remainder will be sold at the tasting room downtown at 1463 First St, Napa, CA
