2012 Broken Earth Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot has emerged as arguably the most consistent performer of all the red varieties. It is normally used as a blending component but we see a very complete wine able to stand alone and stand tall. The bouquet is rich, ripe and loaded with wild berry aromas. Subtle use of oak has allowed the true personality of the variety to shine.
The palate is quite powerful, showing a many-layered complexity with great length of flavor and ripe, robust tannins. It is a rare example of an intensely flavored wine that still exhibits true sophistication.
