Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot is a thick-skinned grape expressing a dense, deep ruby color. Aromas are dark and brooding, with blackberry, black cherry, fig, mocha, dried herbs, and savory truffles. Oak barrels contribute a caramel and toasted marshmallow nuance, along with some baking spices. The entry is juicy, with mouthwatering acidity. A rich midpalate leads to flavors of dark plum, black cherry, mocha, coffee, and dark chocolate. Ripe, pronounced tannins are present from start to finish.

Tasting Notes

Production Notes
The fruit for this wine was harvested at an optimal level of ripeness from September to October. Fermentation took place at a high temperature to ensure that maximum extraction was achieved before the wine was racked to 50 percent new French oak barrels.
Vineyard Notes
The majority of the fruit for our 2017 Petit Verdot was sourced from our vineyards in the Oakville, Carneros, and Oak Knoll District appellations. Petit Verdot is a late-ripening variety, and these warm regions encourage the development of complex flavors and a rich mouthfeel.
