A huge wine with incredible density and palate weight, and tannins you can actually chew. This is Petite Verdot, Caldwell style. It’s a warrior of a wine, fit for battle, dinner or fluffing. This vintage has a beautifully perfumed nose with blackberry and rose petals, but the palate is all business with serious Bing cherry, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and savory mineral notes. It's surprisingly refreshing for such a big, bad-ass red.
