Vintage Notes
The 2015 vintage was marked by another year of drought across California’s North Coast. While quality was high, yields were low. Fortunately, that which we did harvest was endowed with depth of character and concentrated flavors.

Vineyard Notes
This wine is a blend from two distinctive vineyards; Juliana Vineyard in the northeast region of the Napa Valley, and King Vineyard located in adjacent Suisun Valley.

Tasting Notes
On the nose this wine reveals hallmark characteristics of Petit Verdot; jasmine, white blossoms and blue fruit. The palate is bold with flavors of espresso, blackberry cobbler and hints of caraway spice. The tannin structure of Petit Verdot lends it as a powerful blending component in many Bordeaux style wines. Bottled on its own, Petit Verdot showcases flashy blueberry, blackberry and baking spice characteristics across an expansive palate, with an everlasting finish.
