SKU: 2014 Petit Verdot

We cultivate less than 500 Petit Verdot grapevines in a single acre adjacent to the Brothers Vineyard.  Its main purpose has been to complement our Brothers Vineyard and Ranch Cabernet Sauvignons, but for the past few years we have bottled a barrel or two as a varietal – initially to learn, but now because we like it so much.  Explosively powerful in a blend, the varietal wine is surprisingly approachable – an education in the wineglass.  Our Petit Verdot block is named after Levi Philander Davis, who homesteaded the ranch in 1878. 100% Petit Verdot; 99 cases made.

Winemaker Notes
Wild and woolly, rich, concentrated, and inky, with a heady bouquet of grouse, brambles, grape jelly, and tobacco
