I've always been smitten with Petit Verdot, but throughout my career I have typically blended it away. After a great conversation with a few glasses of wine, a friend told me that the infamous 1947 Chateau Cheval Blanc is said to be a majority Petit Verdot. Once I started B.Leighton, I knew I had to make a Petit Verdot dominated wine. This wine is expressive with violets, blackberry, black plum and cured black olive notes. There is smoked paprika and crushed rock. Focused and elegant, but dense, seductive and mysterious.

"Editors' Choice" This is an exceptional example of this variety, with aromas of fresh herb, violets, orange peel and black fruit. The dark-fruit flavors are rich and layered, showing an exquisite sense of balance along with great length.

Ripe and fleshy, with generous cherry and floral flavors, hinting at black tea and licorice notes as the finish plays against a polished texture. Drink now through 2020. 286 cases made.
