2015 Chene Petit Verdot..... Best bottle of Texas wine I've ever had. This bottle pours a dark purple color into the glass. Nose is lavender, hawthorne, cinnamon and plum. Black tarry color. The entry reveals a FULL BODIED wine. Dark, black plum, earthy, black fruit, red apple cinnamon spice with plum tart overlay. Finishes dark with mint and acidity and youthful oak tannin that is ABUNDANT. This wine is THICK. The acidity from start to finish is quite high which pretty much just tells me that this wine's best days are STILL ahead of it. This glass was enjoyed from Coravin, so I can only imagine how amazing it would be with a 4 hour decant. WOW. Drink 2020-2030.
