Wine Maker’s Notes: This bold, Bordeaux-style Petit Verdot explodes with dark cherry and blackcurrant notes on the nose. Earth-driven, bold and structured notes of raspberry, black fruit and spice dominate on the palate. This is a well-rounded wine featuring the distinct tannin structure that our Petit Verdots typically exhibit. Rich in texture with well-balanced acidity, this wine will age well. Best served at approximately 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Aging and Fermentation: Classic eleven day fermentation on the skins with pump-overs daily, followed by the traditional malolactic fermentation to soften the wine. Aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.
Varietal Composition: 75% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
Food Pairings: Recommended with red meats and hearty meals.
