2017 Petit Verdot Estate Reserve
100% Petit Verdot
We generally consider our estate Petit Verdot to be our flagship wine here at Thatch Winery. The wines of the excellent 2017 vintage are still showing their youthful demeanor. This inky black Petit Verdot will require a few years of aging to round the young wine's rigid spine of chewy tannins and natural acidity. Flavors will develop from floral and savory elements into notes of blackberry and loam; all of which are hallmarks of our vineyard and this cuvee. The wine has plenty of structure to age, but for for the adament, the wine can also be enjoyed now with adequate decanting. Enjoy 2020-2025, preferably with wild game.
