Winemaker Drew Horton Notes
Petit Verdot is one of the least known Bordeaux red grapes and only recently has begun to attract attention in California. The variety requires patience, lots of sun and a very long growing season. Fortunately 2009 was exceptionally hot as harvest approached. We were fortunate to bring in a lovely crop which resulted in this wine. The color is blue-black resembling the precious onyx stone. The bouquet is grapey, blackberry, and black cherry, plum, brown spice, violets and sweet tobacco. The flavors are complex and lovely with a hint of mint. The finished is balanced, soft and lingering.
