Petit Verdot 2017
The vigneron stood on the edge of his vineyard scratching his head. So many of his vines were loaded with ripening red grapes, looking just days from harvest. But a few still held small green grapes that had yet to swell and change color, what the vigneron knew as “veraison,” meaning the changing of the color. He shook his head and kept pruning, knowing his patience would be rewarded.
