2010 Broken Earth Petit Verdot

2010 Broken Earth Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot (pronounced ‘Puh-tee Ver-doh’)  translates to “little green”, which relates to the fact that it is a late-ripening grape and hard to achieve full ripeness in its native home in Bordeaux. In other regions of the world, which have longer growing seasons, as we do here in California, winemakers have been experimenting with 100% varietal wines of Petit Verdot.  A 100% Petit Verdot varietal is a big wine with very dark color and high tannin structure which is great for aging.

Sourced entirely from our “Estate” vineyard in the rolling, golden hills in Paso Robles, Petit Verdot has emerged as arguably the most consistent performer of all the red varieties.

It is normally used as a blending component but we see a very complete wine able to stand alone and stand tall. The bouquet is rich, ripe and loaded with wild berry aromas. Subtle use of oak has allowed the true personality of the variety to shine. The palate is quite powerful, showing a many-layered complexity with great length of flavour and ripe, robust tannins. It is a rare example of an intensely flavoured wine that still exhibits true sophistication.

Food Pairing Notes
Our Petit Verdot is a full-bodied wine, and is best paired with dishes that can “stand up to it”. It is fantastic with rich cuts of red meat, or well-aged cheeses. Pairs perfectly with a Grilled Porterhouse Steak and Blue Cheese Butter.
