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 EnthusiastThis Petit Verdot carries aromas of dark berries and baking spices. The saturated, chewy palate offers equal parts thickness, acidity and tannins. Spicy blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors finish solid. Drink through 2019.

Wine AdvocateAlso from the varietal reserva line, the 2015 Reserva Petit Verdot feels a bit reductive. It has some herbaceous notes, a medium-bodied palate with fine tannins and a slight bitterness on the dry finish. 22,212 bottles were filled in December 2016. Drink Date: 2018-2020.
