Petit Verdot, Napa Valley

Our Petit verdot is grown on the Gobbler Grove vineyard owned by Mike & Kelly Nichelini. These vines are planted in clay and loam soils on the eastern hills of the Napa Valley appellation, an ideal spot to face the afternoon sun.  Hot summer daytime temperatures and cool evenings result in grapes with rich fruit flavors and an excellent acid balance.  Petit verdot, one of the traditional Bordeaux varietals, is characterized as having deep color and firm tannins, two attributes used in Cabernet blends.
