2006 Petit Verdot, Napa Valley -
Historically, Petit Verdot was used as a minor component in many of Bordeaux's finest wines. When able to ripen fully, the grape can add a rich purple color, firm tannins and an exotic floral and spicy perfume to the resulting wines. The 2006 Petit Verdot is the second Petit Verdot for Bourassa Vineyards. Less than 200 cases were crafted.
