2017 Desert Wind Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot, known for its rich color and robust tannins, is one of the classic Bordeaux varietals. This Petit Verdot, however, is made to stand on its own to showcase the rich and bold flavor of the varietal. The grapes were fermented in open top bins with twice daily punch downs, with 10 days of skin contact, and then aged for 17 months in barrel utilizing some French oak to complement the wine. This is a bold wine with robust tannins and notes of plum, blackberry, lilac, and mocha.
