2012 Herrera Valeria, Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot is most often used in blends, but Rolando created this wine on its own. The 2012 Selección Valeria has a concentrated violet, almost black color, with beautiful aro-mas of Gardenias, dried cherries, fig, forest floor and pumpkin seeds. Its velvety texture, rich gripping tannins and round mid-palate combines to display flavors of boysenberries, cranberries, hibiscus, caramel, and dark chocolate. As 100% Petit Verdot you really get a sense of the character of this varietal.
