2016 Petit Verdot

2016 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. We are happy to include our 2016 Petit Verdot as part of our "Bordeaux Bundle," available for purchase.

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.
