About This Wine

 

Our 2011 Petit Verdot features expressive aromas of cherry and raisin, influenced by notes of toast and smoke. The dried fruit character continues on the palate, bolstered by bright nuances of raspberry as well as a smooth acidity and firm tannic structure. Its long finish is reminiscent of blackberry, herbal tea, spices and subtle oak.

Aging Statement

 

This wine may age for 6 years or more. Aging is an imprecise art; excessive aging could lead to a negative effect. Ideally, try some every year and enjoy the wine’s journey. Keep at a uniform temperature - 55 degrees is best. It is perfectly normal for a well aged wine to develop minor sediment in the bottle and on the cork surface.
