The 2014 Petit Verdot has a very deep dark purple/black color with a hint of magenta that clings to the inside of the glass. Aromatically this wine is loaded with bright perfumed dark fruits; blackberry, marionberry, black currant and pomegranate. The bouquet takes a backseat to the strength of the fruit, but does provide a sweet toasted oak character with notes of milk chocolate. On the pallet succulent juicy flavors of black fruits are presented by a smooth elegant wine with a creamy silky texture. The tannins are mature and well integrated providing richness without astringency. The finish is long and flavors of hibiscus flowers, mineral and chalk linger well after the wine is gone.
