Tamber Bey Vineyards

Petit Verdot

5 cases produced


In 2002, Tamber Bey owner Barry Waitte and founding winemakers Thomas Brown and Mike Smith selected and planted a block of Bordeaux blend varietals in the Deux Chevaux Vineyard, located in the Yountville Appellation. This block was nicknamed the “Sandbox” because it allows us to play—to be creative with blends—and we knew that as soon as the vines were mature enough, we would make a Petit Verdot from this block. Already used in small quantities as part of the Rabicano blend, this Petit Verdot has everything necessary to stand independently. It’s the perfect varietal for a unique, limitedproduction wine.

Aging Process

20 months in 50% new French oak. Taransaud and Ermitage barrels.

Q&A With the Winemaker

Q: Premiere Napa Valley wines are innovative and allow each winery to showcase the region's sense of exploration in fine winemaking. What kind of exploration did your Premiere Napa Valley wine allow you to do?

A: It enabled me to isolate the petit verdot from our Yountville Appellation estate vineyard and allow it to express itself.
