VDR Estate, Monterey, California
44% Petite Sirah, 56% Petite Verdot
VDR is full-bodied yet supple, with deep, ripe fruit flavours of black currant and black raspberry perfumed by delicate notes of crushed violet. A firm, chalky tannin structure belies the velvety, luscious mouth feel. Dense flavours integrate beautifully for a long, layered finish.
