A classic winery producing a not-so-classic wine from Alexander Valley. Petit Verdot loosely translates to "little green one" as the grapes hang long into harvest before they are ready to be picked. The vineyards in Alexander Valley are suited for this as cold mornings and afternoon sun provide an extended growing season. Expect aromas and flavors of dark berries, blueberry jam, anise and notes of toasty vanilla.
Winemaker Dave Ready Jr. is the embodiment of the Murphy-Goode philosophy, a serious winery built around a common concept: don't take life so seriously. He is a master of balance—evaluating and integrating each barrel to create a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts. He has a talent for smoothing out the edges of each component to ensure consistent, yet complex wines.
