2014 Alexander Valley Estate Petit Verdot

2014 Alexander Valley Estate Petit Verdot

Winemaking Notes

Our Petit Verdot grapes were picked early in the morning, when temperatures are at their coolest. The grapes were separated from the stems and put into small fermenting bins with a dry ice blanket for 2-4 days. For primary fermentation, the must was inoculated with a special yeast that compliments the aromas and flavors of Petit Verdot.  After secondary fermentation, the wine was transferred into French Oak barrels and racked 3 times, removing some sediment and providing the wine some controlled oxygen. Our Petit Verdot spent a total of 24 months in barrels. This wine shows an intense deep purple color with bright fruit aromatics and flavors.
