A varietal rarely found unblended in the Napa Valley, Petit Verdot is a finicky little grape that is packed with a lot of power. This unique and extraordinary wine has developed a devoted following. It's deep eggplant color and black fruit flavor are enhanced by its 24 months on 100% new French oak and extended cave aging. Released when our winemaker felt it was ready for full enjoyment, it will drink beautifully for up to ten years from vintage.
