Buy because you love Petit Verdot or because it is a stunningly brilliant wine. We've always been fond of Limelight but the 2016 melted all the previous vintages. It captures all of the exotic and energetic lushness of Petit Verdot while adding elements that make it a complete, compelling wine. It gushes with black and blue fruited intensity, plunging deep and dark, then shows a surprisingly bright and lively side. Utterly, immaculately seamless--it moves with grace, not with muscle--picking up espresso notes that makes us want to pair it espresso-rubbed steaks.
The recent passing of Neil Peart, drummer and lyricist of Rush who inspired the name of this wine and millions of young drummers like me name, calls for a special toast. Here's to those who inspire us! - Marcus
