2010 Reserve Petit Verdot Thirsty Thursday
The rolling hills of Paso Robles with decomposing soils and ample sunshine provide an ideal climate for Petit Verdot, a variety rarely seen as a stand-alone wine. Unlike its original home in Bordeaux where this varietal can be challenged to ripen fully, our climate is perfect for Petit Verdot and the resulting wine is packed with powerful fruit and tannins. The use of French oak for maturation provided structure and support to an already concentrated wine dominated by dark fruits, vanilla and exotic spices. This is a sophisticated wine showing the unique juxtaposition of Petit Verdot - power and elegance.
