Sunshine and warmth were plentiful in 2013, nowhere more so than the upper bench of our Dynamite Block. Under these ideal conditions, our Petit Verdot darkened to the inky color for which the wine is known. Though its formidable tannic structure will withstand generous aging in new oak, too much barrel aging can overpower some of Petit Verdot’s subtle, delicate nuance. A restrained oak regimen more aptly reveals this underappreciated variety’s true depth.
