2013 Petite Verdot
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 to merit bottling as a separate varietal. Our 2013 Petit Verdot is so delicious and complete on its own we have chosen to showcase this wine as a stand-alone varietal.. Smooth, rich and impeccably balanced, it has flavors of wild cherry and vanilla with firm, 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.
