2019 Fidélitas Estate Petit Verdot
This is the very first vintage for a 100% varietal Petit Verdot out of the Fidélitas Estate. An extremely limited bottling with only 6 barrels selected for the final blend. Petit Verdot, traditionally only used as a blending grape, does well on Red Mountain with the hot and dry growing conditions reaching full ripeness. The result is a wine that has tons of concentration and chewy tanning structure but loads of fruit and complexity. On the aroma we get wild berry, blueberry, and sage. The palate is mouthful—fig, black currant, and vanilla bean with a loooong finish. Pair this wine with fattier style dishes to compliment the full tannin structure. We’d recommend setting this wine down for 2-5 years before enjoying, after then it should last a good 15+ years in your cellar.
