Amazing wine. The 38% petite verdot makes such a difference coupled with the cabernet. 6 veteran wine drinkers sampled this bottle and all thought it was very good and different in a good way. One concern was the cork was like powder. I could not get the cork out as it desintegrated along the way. I was able to filter it into a decanter. Fortunately, the wine was in good shape I am chalking that up to the one bottle as I have had that laying down and chilled the whole time.
The nice thing about this bottle is the 38% petite verdot and how those grapes give the wine a different dimension. I decanted for two hours. Last glass was amazing. Give this wine some time to open up before consuming. As far as I know this wine is only available through the wine club or by visiting the winery and buying. I purchased mine at Stag's Leap several years ago during one of their private tours.
