Opaque 2008 Petit Verdot (Paso Robles)

Opaque's Petit Verdot impresses with its inky color; intense, deep flavors of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, dark chocolate, spice and cedar; and also for its tannins, which are thick and astringent. This is quite a big wine, with a chewy, meaty complexity. It doesn't seem to be an ager, but what a great wine for a charbroiled steak. From Riboli Famly, it's their best Petit Verdot yet.
