We do not ship.
Aromas of ripe dark fruits with a hint of chocolate and leather. Blackberry and plum with a touch of aged balsamic on the dark-in-color palate; Soft and round mouthfeel finishing with soft tannins. Husband-and-wife Javier and Carolina along with Javier's two brothers lead the estate as 4th generation viticulturists, with Carolina leading the artistry of the winemaking. The land was originally gifted to the Illana family in 1626 by the King of Spain. Most often Petit Verdot is a blending grape however, wanting to try something new, Carolina bottled this 100% Petit Verdot giving us a rare understanding of the varietal.
