Petit Verdot 


Thick-skinned Petit Verdot is perhaps best known for its alluring dark color. With proper ripening, it is also dense and tannic. Our small Dynamite Block planting of Petit Verdot is among the last harvested at Moon Mountain Vineyard, encouraging maximum concentration and richness from extended hang time. Delicate floral notes and a lighter touch of oak separate this wine from the bolder offerings we craft from the Dynamite Block.
