Petit Verdot always strives to be a monster, tannic, brash... this is why it's always used sparingly in Bordeaux. Luckily this vintage, we had a perfect foil to this monster in the Mataro. That brashness is quieted to a dark rumbling, while bright red fruit dances throughout. Like an African Rhino with its Oxpeckers, these two are symbiotic.
