RGW - Petit Verdot 2020
2020 Petit Verdot
A wine made from Petit Verdot grapes, grown at our other vineyard site Mesilla Vineyard Estates.
It is a grape that grows smaller berries, which gives us a larger skin to juice ratio (opposite to Mission grape) and leads to the dense color and higher tannin.
Dense, dark red in color, with aromas of black fruits, blackberry & black cherry, baking spice, anise, leather, dark chocolate/mocha, gravel along with the aroma of the desert at sunset.
Medium fruit weight and an intense structure on the palate with flavors of blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, with lingering velvety tannins and a touch of saltiness on the finish.
