Petit Verdot

Our Petit Verdot is elegant on the nose, bold on the palate, and visually satisfying.

WINEMAKER NOTES: 2018 was a perfect growing season in eastern Washington – heat early in the summer with a cool fall and no rain. These ideal conditions resulted in grapes with high sugar, balanced acid, and amazing color. To our inky-dark and robust Petit Verdot, we blended a touch of velvety smooth Syrah to soften the edges. Aged in a hefty portion of new American oak, our Petit Verdot is elegant on the nose, bold on the palate, and visually satisfying – a perfect trifecta of sensory pleasure.
