Wine Review: This pitch black colored Petit Verdot from Colorado is my first wine from that state. I enjoyed it. It opens with black raspberry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild smoky oak influenced beef jerky and gentle blackberry blend. I also detected a hint of black cherry, faint minerality and cola towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a little while. This wine would pair very well with Brazilian Fraldinha (Bottom Sirloin Steak). Enjoy - Ken
