Owner/winemaker Marty Clubb typically uses Petit Verdot as a blending component with his other red wines, but the 2009 version was just too delicious to let slip away anonymously. So he kept four barrels and crafted this delicious red. It opens with aromas of blackberry, white pepper and black currant. On the palate, it reveals a sense of strength with dense flavors of boysenberry, blueberry and lingering blackberry. It’s a big, purple-flavored wine with rich acidity and assertive tannins. This is sold out at the winery, but if you have a bottle or two in your cellar, we suggest holding it for at least a couple of years or enjoying now with a thick slice of prime rib.
