Intense aromas of fresh plums and cherries are harmoniously balanced by subtle notes of rose and sweet spices and mild hints of caramel, vanilla, and mocha. A full-bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavors, a balanced acidity, and a velvety texture. Sweet tannins linger through the persistent, lengthy finish. Ruca Malen Petit Verdot is aged in 80% French and 20% American new and second-use oak barrels for 12 months.

Wine SpectatorA lithe red, with firm tannins and structure behind the flavors of blueberry, dried raspberry and dried cherry. Cedar and dried herbal influences flow into the spicy finish, which shows some forest floor notes. Drink now through 2019. 3,000 cases made.
