This late-ripening Bordeaux variety flourishes in the warm climate and rich soils of the Sacramento Delta, achieving a level of ripeness and complexity not often found in its country of origin.  While it is often used in blends, it rarely possesses the stuffing needed to merit bottling as a separate varietal.  Our 2012 Petit Verdot was so delicious and complete on its own we chose to showcase this wine without any blending; it is dark, powerful and layered with plum, incense, mineral, tar, black cherry, vanilla and tobacco aromas.  Medium-bodied and impeccably balanced, it has flavors of cedar and wild cherry, with firm but ripe tannins and a velvet mouth-feel.  While wonderfully approachable now and ready for your holiday entertaining it will continue to soften and gain complexity with an additional 1-3 years of aging.
