90% bootjack ranch, 10% heart hill vineyard
85% Petit Verdot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah
Petit Verdot is classically used as a blending grape but in certain vintages our estate vineyards produce such a beautiful expression that it can stand on its own. The 2015 vintage was a challenging one as the effects of the ongoing drought, in combination with a cool spring, resulted in dramatically lower yields. However, the lower yields combined with warmer temperatures that persisted into the Fall allowed for the perfect ripening conditions for Petit Verdot. This vintage shows dense fruit & light floral aromatics that create a captivating balancing act of flavors.
