2011 Trinchero Central Park Petite Verdot 750ml
Petit Verdot is most often used in blends, but I really enjoy making (and drinking) this wine on its own. This wine has a deep inky purple color, floral aromas reminiscent of lavender, rose and chamomile, and layered black fruit flavors. Its velvety texture and full mid-palate reminds me a of a vanilla spice crème brulée. As 100% Petit Verdot you really get a sense of the character of this varietal and, thanks to its vineyard location, you can taste the power, but the tannins are tamed. Rated 93 Points Lisa's Staff.
