Kingston Estate Petit Verdot 1999

This was another quite pleasing petit verdot.  This late ripening variety seems to perform rather well in the warmer regions of Australia, whereas in its home in France, it is but a mere part of the Bordeaux blend.  Deeply coloured, this wine had an aroma of black fruits, herbs, dusty coffee and, in particular, anise.  The palate showed some tannins and length, with notes of black currants and licorice.  Really quite good.  88 points.
