2013 Cerro Petit Verdot


2013 Cerro Petit Verdot

Winery Tasting Notes: Red cherry and red plum fruit drive the palate with nice hints of leather, earth and vanilla. This is juicy and crowd pleasing with supple texture. Bright acidity and tannins promise this wine excellent cellaring potential. This is a delicious and food friendly red wine packed with flavor.
