In California, getting Petit Verdot to ripen is not an issue, especially not at the Damir Ranch in Stanislaus County; the source of the grapes we use to produce this wine. Petit Verdot thrives in the California sunshine where it produces deeply pigmented grapes and wines with mature, integrated tannins along with aromas of cassis and blackberry. Historically used as a blending variety, it is showcased here as a single varietal.
