Growing conditions:
Above average winter rainfall, no frost and normal budbreak produced great fruit set. Judicious thinning and a warm summer led to an outstanding harvest with excellent quality and yields.

The grapes were hand harvested, then crushed into a stainless fermentor. 24 hours later, the must was inoculated with D80 yeast then pumped over twice daily for 13 days then 7 days of maceration prior to pressing. After completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the Petit Verdot was aged in French and Hungarian oak for 24 months prior to bottling.

Tasting notes:
Intense aromas of crushed violets and unsweetened chocolate with wisps of exotic floral notes are complimented by a background of subtle oak. This wine is a mouthful with an elegant sufficiency of tannins and toasty oak followed by an extended, rich finish.

While enjoyable now, this intense Petit Verdot will continue to improve with proper cellaring for another 5-10 years in the bottle with a plateau of best drinkability from 2023-2028.

Food selection:
Best match for filet and rich sauces! This elegant wine will compliment a large array of foods and aged cheeses.
