2008 L'Aventure Le Grand Verdot

60% Petit Verdot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah – 15.9% alc - Purple! Juicy, vinous aromas of currant, blackberry preserves and licorice marry with the floral notes of crushed violets and “garrigue”. Mineral notes (chalk, graphite) in the aroma also lead the broad, soft attack on the palate, followed by leather and viande wrapped around peppery, dark berry fruit. The mouth feel is dense and satiny.
