2018 Tovero, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
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. The aromatics are deep and brooding, with notes of dark chocolate, caramel and candied pecans, and a hint of truffles and even graham cracker smores. Flavors of blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry combine with graham cracker crumble, toasted pecan and dark chocolate. The plush and supple mid-palate leads to a mouthcoating of expansive tannins for a long and firm finish.Cellar this wine and you will be rewarded for your patience.
