Petite Beast Petit Verdot

$60.00Price

2017 — Russell Family Vineyard, Paso Robles, CA

 

Petit Verdot is traditionally used as to make up a small percentage of a Bordeaux blend to provide backbone and structure, but we think it's a star on its own. 

 

It translates to "little green" because of the difficulty to get it fully ripe in the South West of France where it was originally planted, thus producing herbaceous, green notes. Now that it's being grown in warmer regions like California, the fruit is anything but green. Russell Family Vineyard was the perfect site for this late ripening grape, as the vines can stand strong under intense strain until they are ready. 

 

Tart cranberries, bold red fruit, baking spice and underbrush and cedar are made delicate by 22 months in French Oak. It's a rare creature.
