Our Review

A Petit Verdot that shows the power of the grape, from the deep purple color, to the dark and charred oak that shows in the mouth. The barrel influence dominates the fruit, giving a burnt taste that's almost a puzzle worth trying. A few years in the cellar should resolve that problem, and then the wine should improve dramatically for at least six years.
