Very Dark Red. The name frankly speaks for itself. Petit Verdot is a grape of dark color, stout tannins and concentrated flavors. The small berries of Petite Sirah means a more intense maceration of skin-to-juice ratio and some of the longest tannins of any vinifera. Together they create a dark, concentrated wine that can be enjoyed now but will age well for a decade or more. VDR is full-bodied yet supple, with deep, ripe fruit flavors of black currant andblack raspberry perfumed by delicate notes of crushed violet. A firm, chalky tannin structure belies the velvety, luscious mouthfeel. Dense flavors integrate beautifully for a long, layered finish.



Producer Description

The grapes for VDR are grown on our estate vineyard in the Hames Valley sub-appellation, located in the southern reaches of Monterey County on the Central Coast of California. This little-known region of softly rolling topography presents ideal climatic conditions for growing top-notch reds. Hames Valley is defined by a dramatic day-to-night temperature swing, with a 50 degree differential quite common. Although most of Monterey County possesses a cool maritime climate due to the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean, Hames is sheltered from the chilly winds and receives a healthy dose of sunshine during the day, followed by a precipitous drop in temperature as the sun goes down. The long, warm days allow full-bodied, dark fruit flavors to develop while the dramatic nighttime cooling preserves the balance and structure of this supple wine.
