2014 CE Vineyards Petit Verdot

2014 CE Vineyards Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot, historically, has been almost exclusively used for blending.  Now this grape is gaining some limited traction as a wine unto itself. To make Petit Verdot more approachable, vineyard practices have evolved thanks to Ed Kelly, Vineyard Manager at Stillwater Creek.  In the cellar, fermentation practices also are customized so yo can enjoy the wine at a relatively young age. Dark red color, aromas of cocoa, ripe blackberry, plum and spice follow directly across the center palate. Silky tannins and the firm acidity on the finish show the traditional attributes that characterize Petit Verdot. This wine, with proper aging, will develop and reward the patient for many years. 98% Petit Verdot, 2% Melot.  144 cases produced.
