    Winemaker's Notes

    Petit Verdot is one of the lesser-known varieties of Bordeaux. It is generally blended with Merlot and Cabernet and adds color and structure to blends. Grapes for this wine come predominantly from vineyards here in the heart of Alexander Valley. The resulting wine was used in our Reserve Alexandre Meritage blend with the balance being matured separately for this Winemaker's Selection wine.

    A rich and powerful wine. As with classic Petit Verdot, the wine is deep and dense in color. The nose is somewhat restrained in comparison to other Bordeaux varieties but shows bright raspberry fruit, enhanced by cedary oak overtures. The bold flavorsome palate with firm tannin finish is indicative of this variety.
