The almost squid-ink dark wine in the glass tells you this is a bold Petit Verdot at the onset which contrasts with the highly floral aromas of rose petal, deep plum and spearmint. On the tongue the full, strong tannins support the ripe blueberries, smoky cigar box, leather and dried herbs. This rich wine finishes strong with a slightly bitter finish.
One of the five main Bordeaux varieties, our 100% Petit Verdot comes from a single vineyard in Calistoga. The rich volcanic soils and extreme swing between daytime and nighttime temperatures of the Calistoga region help produce this bold, deep and well balanced red wine. Only 50 cases produced.
