SKU: 2011 Petit Verdot

An important part of our Reserve blend since the late 1990s, this is the first time we have produced Petit Verdot from our one acre estate block as a varietal.  The wine is both powerful and supple -- Robert Parker remarked on "attractive floral notes interwoven with mulberries and black currants" and "surprisingly velvety tannin."  It's an education in a wine glass and the wine to give to your most oenophilic friends.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Diana describes the 2011 Petit Verdot as "the powerhouse of the vintage. It has sexy aromas of black ink, black cherry, licorice, violets and minerals complemented by sweet oak scents. On the palate it is smooth with broad, supple tannins."
