Quote – “Petit Verdot is known for its colour, and this wine is dark purple, almost black. The tannins are also pretty prominent, although they are balanced by a freshness from black currant fruits and a fine, mineral structure. There is a touch of pepper and spice at the end” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
