Petit Verdot 2014
WINE OVERVIEW

Luis transforms the powerful Petit Verdot into a supple, elegant wine with depth and grace.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of mulberry, wildflower, pickled cherry, forest floor, and cold charcoal. The dark, meaty palate has notes of minerality and wild spices driven by silky tannins. Good acidity on the finish.

Food Pairing

Try with pork spare ribs, barbequed steak, or aged cheeses.
