Winemaker Notes
Our 2010 Rutherford Petit Verdot has aromas of black licorice and berries with a plate that is full of bright cherry and cassis. This wine has firm tannins and mouthwatering acidity along with subtle earthiness on the lengthy finish. A wine that will age gracefully, this Petit Verdot pairs well with braised meats including wild game.

Production Notes
The Foley Johnson Estate Petit Verdot is grown on loamy soils of gravel, clay, and sand which helps provide ample drainage and lessen the vigor of foliage growth. These ideal growing conditions allow our Bordeaux varietals to reach full maturity on the vine without taking on the green leafy taste of under-ripened fruit. The grapes were harvested September 18th through October 26th 2010, under clear night skies. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and was racked four times throughout the barreling process. After 20 months of aging in new and used French Oak barrels (33% new) the wine was bottled September 12, 2012.
