2015 Petit Verdot
One of Tim Busch's favorite unusual varieties has always been Petit Verdot, very rarely found on its own. In 2015 we began working with Petit Verdot from Juliana Vineyard, and it came in so luscious and smooth we determined this could be our first 100% Petit Verdot. So, after 15 years, Tim finally got his Petit Verdot. Your wine is a special blend of two of our favorite oaks, French and Russian. This unique 50/50 blend of these two oaks sculpts your wine into a bold and huge wine that still has amazing balance and a great, smooth and long finish.
