A recent business trip to Boston helped me unearth this little gem which has quickly become one of my go-to’s for a friday night and a permanent addition to my wine collection.
Don’t be fooled by the name, there petite petit bunches way over it’s weight with an abundance of fruit flavours and fine-grained tannins that create a smooth, rich and balanced blend that is sure to please.
