Full bouquet of fresh roses, wild violets and dried flowers that settle into fresh juicy fruit aromas that bring to mind sweet candied strawberry and sugar plums. The oak influence is more apparent here, bringing forth aromas of smoke and dark spices. Powerful presence and velvety texture throughout with densely packed ripe fruit flavors. Unexpectedly light and silky given its bold structure, which is due to the higher natural acidity of the Petit Verdot variety, and it leaves the palate wanting another taste! Drink/Hold over the next 7–15 years.
