Gritty, earthy aromas of hot tarmac and leathery plum give off a burnt character. Easy, smooth and flush across the palate, this blend of 70% Petit Verdot and 30% Malbec tastes peppery, spicy and of roasted black fruits. Toastiness carries over to the finish, which deals burnt, peppery spice notes and mild heat.
