2007 Petit Verdot Reserve
Hey wait, I didn’t know you guys had vineyards in Napa! Well, the fact of the matter is, we don’t. But we have the next best thing … a very good friend with a vineyard in the esteemed Rutherford district of Napa Valley. A very good friend. And this VGF parted with a few tons of precious gems from his renowned Melrose Vineyard. This Petit Verdot has been the stuff of legends ever since. In our winemaking team tasting notes, the unanimous consensus was, “Stunningly delicious!” As full bodied and richly purple colored now as it was in its youth, it is an intense and concentrated wine with abundant black fruit, a hint of violet, and a spicy edge. This distinctive wine has a strong yet supple tannin structure and elegant texture. It’s absolutely outstanding now with mind-blowing ageability, still!
