2018 Brecon Petit Verdot (Club Only)

Like the lumen sucking darkness I once immersed myself in a lava cave in Iceland. Darkness you can absolutely chew on. OK perhaps the chewy bit might be related to the wonderfully ripe tannins from this single vineyard expression. Amazingly, sunny Paso Robles can take some of these lesser known varieties to new dizzying heights. Bright velvety fruit, bags of varietal character, fantastic structure and excellent mid palate fruit weight. No need to go Icelandic volcano watching to warm your tootsies. This Petit Verdot pairs perfectly with any mildy chilly or blustery evening.

Tasting notes

Might just have well put these barrels in a cave and forgotten about them as this is effectively what we did to this wine in winemaking terms. Isolating them, so we could see what the underlying fruit was really like from these youthful vines. Having been more than suitably impressed. The quality necessitated diverting the new oak barriques of the somewhat larger original lot to this single vineyard offering.

Back in the mysteries of time our winemaker produced one of the highest scoring Petit Verdot’s ever. Budwood from those vines was planted on the Brecon Home ranch in 2015.  What you are seeing here is the fruition of this vision. The first micro bottling of Brecon Estate's  "EstatePetit Verdot".
