2014 Petit Verdot Ciel du Cheval, Red Mountain

We don't do much when making a Varietal Petit Verdot. The vineyard does most of the winemaking. In 2014 we had warmth from the beginning to the end of the season. This allowed the Petit Verdot to fully develop, resulting in intense color, aroma and flavors with dusty tannins in the wine. We just needed to stay out of the way of the fruit and let it be what it was going to be. We fermented the fruit in open top fermenters and aged it in two thirds new French oak. We did nothing else. 

A classic Petit Verdot -- dense in all respects. Dense color, dense aromas of black fruits, and dense flavor. The dusty tannins hang back a little, emerging with time, then gently fading with the long finish.  From beginning to end this is intense. This is a classic Petit Verdot. 93 Points, Best of Class, 2020 American Wine Society Awards.
