2011 Selección Valeria Petit Verdot 1.5L

Petit Verdot brings lush aromatics of ripe blueberry and plum, with delicate notes of granite dust, white pepper, and tobacco leaf. On the palate, Mediterranean spices mingle with sweet mulberries—reminiscent of a homemade red velvet cake. A delightfully approachable wine.

Vineyard Notes
Rumors are that the 2011 harvest was certainly not the easiest, but who wants easy? The growing season began with a wet cool spring. Rainfall lasted into the middle of June affecting bloom and diminishing yields in many vineyards. The cool weather trend continued all summer delaying ripening throughout Napa Valley. The truth is, even in a stellar vintage, nothing is perfect. We are proud to say, that this vintage will be epic in our portfolio. We took advantage of the challenges and made a great wine.
Production Notes
Rolando’s goal is to embrace the true character of this varietal and not squander its natural bold structure. As much tannin is extracted as possible before being aged in 100% new French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes
The 2011 Selección Valeria has a concentrated violet, almost black color, with beautiful aromas of honeycomb, blood orange, forest floor, and sweet oak. Its velvety texture, rich gripping tannins, and round mid-palate combine to display flavors of boysenberries, cranberries, hibiscus, apple sauce, and blood orange.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is already a meal in a glass. Aromas of smoked brisket make us want to drive down to Texas for some BBQ. Alternatively, jump on a plane to Rome for some rigatoni with spicy sausage.

It is one of those very special limited production wines with aromas of Violets, deep, dark, intense color and elegant ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit. The finish is long with soft, beautifully structured tannins. This is a big, fruity, wine that will linger in your memory as well as on your palate. Although Petit Verdot is typically used as a blender, the soil of this sunny valley floor site yields a Petit Verdot with balanced tannins and complex flavors.
