2018 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Petit Verdot

2018 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Petit Verdot

We don’t get to make varietal Petit Verdot from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard in every vintage. However, 2018 gave us the perfect combination of both good yields and good quality that allowed us to pull out a few barrels to make this wine. “We’re fermenting in those roller barrels we have. This adds a nice richness to the wine and smooths out those harsher, dry tannins you can get with Petit Verdot. It makes for a really nice powerful wine, but one that isn’t over-extracted,” Will notes. This wine is deep and concentrated with huckleberry and blackberry tones. “There are big, powerful tannins right up front. For me, this is definitely a wine I want to pair with food, something fatty to cut through it all.” Grab a steak and drink now through 2030.
