It's not often that Petite Verdot is bottled on its own.  More typically, it is found in small amounts in Bordeaux blends, so this was an interesting treat.  Purple in color, opaque and bright.  On the nose there are plums, slight blueberries, slight lilac, spice and char.  Full bodied.  On the palate, the plums come thru strong with slight blueberries and underlying gravel.  It is tasty but not complex.  More mono-dimensional.  Still, it is quite enjoyable to drink and unique.  Light tannins.  Moderate finish.  This probably will go another five to eight years.  A nice match with grilled foods.
