I know what you're thinking: Petit Verdot, hard tannic, not very nice...but you would be wrong. Instead, supple, charming, and pretty. Dark, vibrant, and very expressive. Fire roasted chilies, fresh violets, blackberry, marjoram, crushed seashells, black fruit compote. Very stylish with an elegant mouth feel and long finish.

From the same site, the 2018 Petit Verdot Olsen Brothers Vineyard offers a rocking nose of cassis and blueberry fruits as well as lots of tobacco, violets, and cedarwood. Full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with integrated oak and silky tannins, it's another stunning wine from this talented winemaker that can be enjoyed any time over the coming 15+ years or so.

Deep magenta in color, the 2018 Petit Verdot Olsen Vineyard opens with aromas of graphite, pencil lead, black cherry skin and dark plum before notions of purple flowers dusted with cinnamon sway from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is balanced with expertly managed tannins and a frame held together by succulent acidity. Concluding with a long, lingering and subtly spiced finish, this Petit Verdot should have no challenges lasting through the end of the decade. The wine rested for 22 months on the lees in 40% new puncheons. 7,476 bottles were filled.
