This limited release wine was crafted using varieties known for their high tannin concentrations and is well-known for exhibiting spicy characters. These varieties are generally used as blending components and mostly in small amounts.

Traditionally Petite Verdot and Tannat exhibit greenness and harsh tannins when grown in cooler climes, however, Petit Verdot and Tannat we have grown on the property exhibits soft and elegant tannins and is loaded with primary fruit.

Our Head Winemaker, Arco Laarman’s appreciation of petit Verdot inspired him to make this unusual blend and to let the fruit express fully by using older oak barrels.
