2015 Les Sauvages Petit Sauvage
As per usual, Mike Bennie's beautiful words are the perfect intro..: Dylan Arvidson worked with Mark Messenger at Juniper Estate and started mucking around with small batches of wine for personal interest. Somewhere in that mix of alchemy, serious winemaking and fun, Les Sauvages was born. 100% Petit Verdot, it packs the tannin, acidity and structure PV is known for but is well balanced and refined. Black forest cake and violets on the nose with plum, raspberry, and cherry on the palate. Begs to be matched with rich food and good times.
