User Reviews for Fetzer Vineyards Petit Verdot Alexander Valley Robert Young Vineyards

Winemaker's Notes:

As with our Winemaker's Reserve Malbec, the fruit for this exceptional wine comes from the storied Robert Young Vineyards on the westward facing hillsides at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains just outside Healdsburg. The Malbec and Petite Verdot, more often used to add complexity as blending wines, show the character and importance of both the vineyard and the Alexander Valley appellation in these exceptional offerings.  The vines are fully mature at an average age of 25 years, and they offer up fruit which produces wines nearly black in color, a deep purple which suggests the tasting experience ahead.  Here both Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from the same vineyard are layered in a sensory swirl that is rich and all encompassing.  On the nose you'll find licorice and a bit of spice, while in the mouth the wine is bold, with strong, well integrated tannins that give structure to the wine.  Ripe dark fruit predominates, with hints of cola, spice and oak from the regime featuring newer barrels.  A long chocolaty finish leaves a lasting impression.
