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, this is a macho, dense, fascinating, full-bodied gem of a red wine that satisfies like a powerful Cabernet, while sporting a completely different swagger.
