Winemaker Notes
This is the inaugural vintage of our Santa Ynez Valley Petit Verdot. We sourced the grapes for this wine from estate vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley. Smokey and rustic, this wine displays aromas of blackberry, black cherries and lilac. The palate is intense and rich, offering flavors of dark fruits, vanilla and tones of nutmeg and clove. The texture is creamy, round and defined by plush tannins that linger on the finish.

Production Notes
2014 produced fruit of high quality and quantity. An earlier that average bud break began in the last week of February, and a warm spring led to an early bloom and fruit set. Few incidents of frost and a warmer than average summer allowed the grapes to ripen at an optimal pace. We harvested the fruit on October 8th through October 16th, 2014.
