“Dense, rich, velvety and powerful, with intense, pure Cabernet fruit, offering layers of unctuous blue fruits, bold tannins, currant, olive, sage and wild berries. Plum, black cherry, blackberry jam, cocoa powder, spice, leather and graphite follow, all exquisitely balanced with excellent structure, depth and length. Ripe and flashy with elegance in its plush texture, delicious now with a little breathing but needs time in the decanter or cellar. With the intensity and deliciousness here it’s hard to believe the price point.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
“This is a new 2nd wine meant as a means for consumers to discover the Vice Versa brand. Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, blending fruit from St. Helena, Pritchard Hill and Yountville and aged 20 months in 50% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Petit Vice is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with expressive crème de cassis, preserved plums and blueberry tart with hints of Chinese five spice, sandalwood, pencil lead and menthol plus a waft of coffee beans. It's full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth with wonderfully plush yet firm tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and spicy.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (10/18)
