2016 Petit Verdot, Napa Valley
92 Points, James Suckling
"Notes of spiced plums and wild berries with hints of smoked bacon, roasted walnuts and dark earth. Full-bodied and concentrated with a persistent dark-fruited character and plush, finely polished tannins. Lingering finish. Drink or hold." 92 Points, James Suckling
This glass staining, inky dark wine, opens with robust aromatics of salted rosemary, dark red fruit, baking spice, and vanilla. The palate is bursting with ripe plum, loganberry, hoisin sauce, and rosemary flavors that are framed by refreshing acidity, and a bounty of ripe tannins. This is an absolute powerhouse with generous amounts of fruit, pronounced savoriness, and fresh structure. A perfect wine to share with friends and family who love Napa cab, but are looking to try something new. This will win them over!
