Winemaker Notes
The grapes for the 2018 Petit Verdot were de-stemmed, crushed, and fermented in open top vats using the punch down method to turn over the cap and extract the optimal color and flavor. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is pressed into tanks, settled, and pumped into barrels. It is then aged in 100% American Oak barrels for 10 months. During the aging process, the wine is racked, tested, and then bottled.
Food Pairing Notes
Savory grilled rack of lamb, filet mignon with blue cheese crumbles, short ribs, spicy salami, black truffles, and truffled goat cheese.
