2018 Petit Verdot

2018 Petit Verdot
Curtis Vineyard

To issue 100% Petit Verdot is to experience the singular lushness of this grape: to measure through the levels of fruit and tannin, to take in the depth from sip to swallow. Petit Verdot is a small, dark berry at ripening, which has found success in the warm climate of Curtis Vineyard in Foxen Canyon.

Tasting Notes
Petit Verdot is one of the five noble grapes of Bordeaux. It is known for its rich color and deep, dark fruit. The 2018 Petit Verdot has dense flavors of plum, violets and mocha, layered over tart cherry and blueberry. Strong tannins are tamed by appealing dark berry fruit on the finish.

Winemaker Notes
Curtis Vineyard is located five miles north of Los Olivos at the beginning of Foxen Canyon. This is a warm part of the Santa Ynez Valley which produces excellent red wine. Drought conditions intensified the dark, saturated, fruit-forward wine.
