Michel-Schlumberger's well-drained benchland soils set the stage for our Petit Verdot grapes to develop into a wine with wonderful layers of dark fruit flavor, finely-integrated tannins and an oppulent finish.
This wine is made from our hillside block of Petit Verdot. With excellent rootstock and clone selections, perfect microclimate and classic red soil, these Petit Verdot grapes consistently produce wonderfully rich flavors.
