> PETIT VERDOT
We grow this rather rare varietal for blending in our "Estate Cabernet."
Petit Verdot is used in small quanitities in many, perhaps most, great Bordeaux wines.
This is a variety which most people have heard of, but hardly anyone knows in its pure form. That is why we decided to bottle just a few cases of 100% Petit Verdot each year, so you can form your own knowledgeable answer to the common question "why do so many great Bordeaux wines have a tiny bit of Petit Verdot in the blend?"
The first thing you will notice is the color, it is as black as the ace of spades. Then you will notice that it has a curious and subtle spiceness.
Perfect for blending? You decide.
