Treasure Hunter, Petit Verdot Violet Volt 2018 750ML
Walla Walla Valley, Washington Petite Verdot
Winery Notes: This is a tiny lot from one of the best producers in Walla Walla. We are very fortunate to have acquired this special wine. You don’t see many 100% PV’s because it is such a rare varietal and the secret spice in many of the legendary Bordeaux Blends from the best regions around the globe.
The volt is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference, and electromotive force. Violet is the color at the end of the visible spectrum of light between blue and the invisible ultraviolet. When you combine the two in liquid form you get Violet Volt.
There’s enough power in just a single drop of this wine to power The Las Vegas Strip for a month. It’s also smoother than the bottom of James Brown’s shoes with lush flavors of plum jam, mocha, and a shag carpet of raspberry cream. Still, the tannins are as bold as brass, and the finish of mocha, cinnamon, and clove linger like a buoy on a lake.
