Petit Verdot


Oh Petit Verdot, how we love you. Our single varietal Petit Verdot is bursting with puckering black cherry and finishes long. You may not know that owners Jon and Cori (with some help from Mark Malick and his team and Cori's brother) hand planted more than an acre of Petit Verdot just beyond the deck at the Wine Reserve. With post hole diggers and a lot of sweat more than 535 vines were planted in an "incubation" vineyard. Though the vines were taken up in 2020 to make way for a new vineyard install we will always remember the work that went in to this particular varietal - we will continue to try (and sometimes fail) at this journey of growing and cultivating grapes to shape our wines.
