More info

The grapes for this Petit Verdot are sourced from one very small vineyard here in Lodi owned by Barbara Huecksteadt. Sitting in deep sandy soils, the vines are regularly water stressed and yield beautifully intense fruit.

It's a fun vineyard with ~5acres planted in almost 16 different varieties, including two clones of Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Teroldego, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Souzao and many other very small quantities of red & white varieties.  The majority of the vineyard is Petite Sirah, then about 6 rows Petite Verdot, 3 rows of Souzao and 6 short rows of 2 Tempranillo clones. Because of this mix of different varieties, we typically have to make a couple passes through it to get each variety picked at their peak ripeness.

Typically relegated to the category of blending varietal, stand alone Petit Verdot is fairly rare in bottled wine. This release marks our 4 release and one of my favorites to date. Through careful vineyard and fermentation temprature management we’ve learned the intricaies of making this sometimes agressively tannic wine and found the beautiful balance in fruit and structure.

    Bold aromas of blackberry, red cherry and blueberries linger on the palate before the long embrace of bold, plush tannins. Finishing with bright, fresh acidity and hints of black fruit the big soft tannins lead into long lines of sweet smoke and spice.
