Opaque Petit Verdot, Paso Robles, 2016
The word opaque means impenetrable to light and refers to the dark, inky, impenetrable color of our family's Petit Verdot. Originally from Bordeaux, Petit Verdot is normally used for blending with other grapes, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. We were so impressed by this wine from our estate vineyard in Paso Robles that we bottled it without any blending. After aging in French and American barrels for 24 months, our wine reveals ripe flavors of black plum and currant with accents of vanilla and dark chocolate.
