2019 Black Mamba

I decided to play around with Petit Verdot in 2013 and, little did I know, I would fall wildly in love.  Although the berries are small, there is nothing trivial about P.V.  This captivating, inky, and elusive wine had to have a name to match its personality.  As the winemaker, I have been as mystified by the following for this wine as I am by the grape itself.

 

The 2019 Mamba is pure Petit Verdot and it commands your attention.  Staff desciptors:  Baby maker, desert rain, Kentucky Derby, evocative, satin ribbon.  My descriptor: Snake charmer.
