2019 Petit Verdot

Pocai Vineyard

We are excited to share our Petit Verdot grapes from our newly planted block at the Pocai Vineyard.  Planted as a blending varietal for us, we are amazed by the quality and just fell in love with it. This wine is fruit-driven and showcases a savory blackberry pie, violet, vanilla, with graham cracker notes.  The wine is big and juicy with complimentary acid and a long finish.

Production Notes
This wine offers a rare glimpse into a grape normally used for blending. Petit Verdot has been used in our wines for color, tannin, and floral bouquet.
Winemaker Notes
2019 yielded a surprisingly large crop. This yield produced bigger palates in our wine with a softer approach. Beautiful vintage.
