Red Wine
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

We conceived this Premiere Napa Valley blend to flaunt the dramatic performance of Petit Verdot from the 2009 vintage. Customarily added as a “pinch,” so impressive was this Petit Verdot that our Meritage blend contains an unheard-of 25%. ARTET is a harmonious fusion of four: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc from elite Napa Valley vineyards, designed and sustainably farmed by the Bill Hill team.
