Varietal
Petit Verdot

Appellation
Oak Knoll

Alcohol %
14.5

Vineyard Notes
Mother Nature was generous and mild in 2016, gracing Napa Valley with a near-perfect growing season. Moderate weather throughout July and August was followed by slightly warmer temperatures as harvest inched closer, bringing the grapes to optimum ripeness before being hand harvested in mid-October.
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 deeply concentrated color of this wine alludes to its rich character and multi-faceted nature. Complex aromas abound from the glass with notes of ripe dark fruits, blackberry, black plum, blueberry; hints of warm cedar, cinnamon, molasses, cocoa and vanilla. Upon entry your senses are awakened with bold ripe juicy tannins that introduce flavors of mouth-watering black currant, blackberry jam and cassis all ensconced in layers of sweet toasty oak.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect for any hearty meal, Rolando’s perfect pairing is grilled duck marinated in rosemary and black pepper, finished off with a smoked gouda or well-aged cheddar cheese.
