Each year we bottle small amounts of traditional Bordeaux “blending” varietals on their own. To be selected for a single varietal bottling the wine must not only meet our qualitative standards, but be a clear and excellent representation of the character of the particular grape varietal. Petit Verdot is known for its structure, with formidable tannins, high acidity, dark fruit, and savory undernotes. We have grown Petit Verdot at our McClellan Estate Vineyard since 2003, and have used it as a blending varietal in Pentad (our top cuvee) and other wines since 2001.



 



The wine is nearly opaque, with dense violet and garnet color. The nose reveals aromas of tobacco, fig, black plums, eucalyptus and musk. The palate is full and powerful with substantial tannins, concentrated black fruits, firm acid structure, and an intense savory character. The wine has enough fruit and creamy mid-palate to match the massive structure for early drinking, though it will improve in the cellar for an additional 5-7 from release.
