2011 Tovero, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
The 2011 Bordeaux blend “Tovero” from the Yountville Appellation Deux Chevaux Vineyard exemplifies the power of Petit Verdot. The nose delivers violet, dark fruit, and a mix of smoky and mineral notes with a hint of fennel seed. This is a massive wine with a firm backbone and therefore should be decanted if drinking young. The mouth combines smoke notes with tar and plantain, with an espresso finish. Ageing recommended.
