SKU: 2018 Petit Verdot

Our single varietal 2018 Petit Verdot is a beautiful example of why we love this grape so much. We age this wine in a blend of American and French oak barrels to enhance its complexity, bringing out its rich aromas of dark chocolate, pomegranate, and dried plum coupled with brooding dark fruits such as cranberry and red plum on the palate. Its finish is dry and tannic with notes of pepper. This lovely wine pairs well with rich meat dishes, spicy foods and a variety of hard and semi-soft cheeses.

Nose:  dark chocolate, pomegranate, green olive, dried plum

Palate:  cranberry, red plum, mustard green, arugula

Finish:  peppery with tart acidity and punching tannins
