Price: $130.00

Beautiful, lively and focused at first approach. Expressing black cassis, blackberry, brambles and thyme combining with crushed gravel, pencil shavings and floral notes. It is a fantastic expression of Petit Verdot that is rich and velvet on the palate, all at the same time. So much depth and length it seriously takes your breath away. - Charles

“Deep purple-colored, the 2015 Petit Verdot Olsen Brother’s Vineyard is [...] a beautiful wine loaded with notions of blueberries, leafy herbs, hints of wet stone, and graphite. It’s full-bodied, gorgeously pure, and vibrant, with a focused, balanced style. It’s as elegant pure, and seamless as this variety gets. Hats off to winemaker Brenna Leighton.”

“Offering up brooding aromas of smoky black cherries, crème de cassis and violets, the 2015 Petit Verdot Olsen Vineyard is full-bodied and powerful, with an ample core of fruit framed by rich structuring tannins, and it has a long, savory finish...”
