2014 Petit Verdot
After harvest, the grapes were destemmed and cold soaked for two days to capture intense color. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks for up to 11 days at a maximum temperature of 90°F. Throughout fermentation, we performed several rack and returns for optimal extraction of color and flavor. This wine saw both French and American oak for 18 months to create well-integrated flavors and a rich mouthfeel.
Rich and full-bodied, our Petit Verdot begins with intense aromas of black currant, with a hint of violets On the palate, this wine has a huge structure with firm tannins and ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry that are well-complemented by notes of cigar, licorice and cocoa.
