A Rare Varietal Expression of this Classic Bordeaux Wine
Flying Leap grows Petit Verdot at its Block 1 vineyard in southeastern Arizona. The vines are situated at 4,300 feet on the western fall of the ancient Dos Cabezas volcano near Willcox. Petit Verdot is indigenous to France’s Bordeaux region, where it is prized for its inky dark color and spicy strength it adds to blends. According to the recent data published by the USDA, there are just six acres of Petit Verdot planted in Arizona, and Flying Leap farms three of them. This 2020 varietal of Petit Verdot is deeply plum-colored, with powerfully concentrated fruit and bold, chewy tannins. Aged 16 months in premium French oak barriques, the wine expresses notes of freshly picked blackberries, vanilla and plum.
