2018 Petit Verdot Levi Philander Davis Vineyard

From a single acre of Petit Verdot growing immediately adjacent to the Brothers Vineyard at 800 feet of elevation, the family loves this wine for its flamboyance, fascinating floral aromas, subtle spicy edge, and the deep color so characteristic of the variety.  The last of our fruit to be picked in 2018, the grapes were harvested on October 13, fermented with wild, native yeasts, aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, and bottled, unfiltered and unfined, in April, 2020.  1,656 bottles produced.

Winemaker Notes
This kind of “Goldilocks” vintage is what Petit Verdot waits for to show its stuff. 100% Petit Verdot and full of dark black cherries, licorice, and brambles, this untamed wine commands attention. Full, rich and chewy on the palate, it can take on grilled meat and spices which would wash out most wines.
