Abadia Retuerta Petit Verdot Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Pv 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2009 Petit Verdot has a very fragrant nose with macerated black cherries and creme de cassis enveloped in a veneer of creamy oak that does not impede the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with salacious dark creamy cassis and dark chocolate-tinged fruit on the entry. It is beautifully balanced almost symmetrical with a long crisp sensual finish that demonstrates just what this esoteric variety can do in the right hands. This is an accomplished Petit Verdot that deserves cellaring. Drink 2013-2020. -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
