This wine is all about the power of Petit Verdot, as immediately evident by the deep, dark plum color to the rim of the glass. Earthy aromas introduce flavors of leather, distinctive spice notes and blueberry, with hints of plum and black cherry. The tannin structure reveals the wine’s youth, developing with aging into a large, powerful structure of the wine. Cellar this wine and you will be rewarded for your patience.
