2013 Ehlers Estate Petit Verdot
from Peter

2013 Ehlers Estate Petit Verdot

Cloaked in dark chocolate, coffee, ripe blueberries, and lavender, this is a savage, dense, fascinating, full-bodied gem of a red wine that satisfies like a powerful Cabernet, while sporting a completely different swagger.

Tasting Notes

From the rocky soils in block 3 right next to our “1886” Cabernet Sauvignon blocks, we have one precious acre of Petit Verdot. From these fragile vines comes an intensely earthy and gamey expression of our Ehlers terroir as seen through the esoteric eyes of Petit Verdot. Cloaked in dark chocolate, coffee, ripe blueberries, and lavender, this is a savage, dense, fascinating, full-bodied gem of a red wine that satisfies like a powerful Cabernet, while sporting a completely different swagger.

Vineyard Notes

2013 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. A warm, dry spring got the vines off to an exceptionally early start. No frost, no rain, no unusual heat waves, just endless days of California sunshine with classically warm afternoons and those cool nights that the grapevines adore. Budbreak was early, veraison was early, and the tempo continued right up until harvest. Great quality across the board, healthy fermentations, rich, complex, full bodied wines throughout the Napa Valley.
