This is a very enjoyable Petit Verdot from Lake County in California. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant and fruit forward. Rich, spicy and interesting.
Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour of airtime. I gave it 90 minutes, but it might have needed even longer.
Good by itself or with food. Paired very well with the prosciutto.
