Our Estate Grown Petit Verdot is truly the oxymoron its name suggests. In the vineyard, the Petit Verdot yields open clusters with tiny berries. Tiny berry size leads to a high ratio of skin-to-juice contact during the fermentation process which creates a wine that exudes concentrated aromatics of blueberry, blackberry, violet, black raspberry, herbs, leather, and coffee. The palate offers fine, silky tannins which give the wine it’s a nice full textured mouthfeel. Aging 20 months in oak adds complexity with flavors of cedar, toasted almonds, and baking spice acting as a sideshow to the main act of black cherry, plum, and lilac. Cleansing acidity runs the length of the wine to retain balance and provides a long-lasting finish. Don’t be misled by its name, “Little Big Man”, as this big and bold wine can hold up to most grilled meats. While it drinks well now, this wine will only benefit from some cellaring time. Don’t forget to decant.
