2018 Rouge Caché - Petit Verdot
This 100% Petite Verdot showcases an impressive density, boasting a full-bodied character with rich, fleshy tannins that envelop the entire palate. A wine of boldness, it's crafted for those who seek robust flavors and tannin. To soften the tannin intensity, we aged this wine for an additional 12 months in New French Oak, smoothing out any potential astringency commonly associated with this varietal. The result is a well-balanced wine that retains its distinctive Petite Verdot essence. On the nose, expect aromas of dark plum, violet, and sour cherry. The palate echoes these flavors, but with a bright quality that elegantly counterbalances the wine's weight. The finish leaves a delightful impression, and notes of cranberry dipped in chocolate. Designed for longevity, this wine has the potential to age gracefully for 20-30 years. A true gem for the collectors and those who appreciate the rewards of patient cellaring.
