The 2017 vintage was cooler than average, a warm trend just before harvest allowed for the grapes to fully ripen.
The best barrels of our estate grown Petit Verdot were reserved for this wine. The appassimento portion of this wine came from 1 barrel each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot derived from grapes that had dried for a of 125 days before being pressed. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months.
This wine pairs particularly well with Filet mignon, New York striploin, venison, blue and aged cheese, charcuterie, smoked beef brisket, mushroom risotto, and roasted lamb.
