Girard 2018 Petit Verdot Napa Valley
Petit Verdot is often only used as a blending component in Cabernet Sauvignon, as a small amount can dramatically impact the overall character of the wine. The winemakers at Girard chose to make this Petit Verdot as a stand-alone wine to highlight this varietal’s distinctive and impressive qualities. This wine is a blend from two distinctive vineyards; Juliana Vineyard in th northeast region of the Napa Valley, and York Creek Vineyard on Sprin Mountain in northwestern Napa Valley.
