2014 Petit Verdot Apollo Drive Vineyard

2014 Petit Verdot Apollo Drive Vineyard

Petit Verdot
NY - North Fork of Long Island
$75.00 / 750 mL Bottle

  • Alcohol 13.90%
This wine is 100% Petit Verdot, made from a single block on Apollo Drive. It marks the fourth time PAUMANOK has bottled a varietal Petit Verdot, and it is one of the finest reds our estate has produced. It was aged for 16 months in french oak, 33% new oak. Spicy with concentrated black fruit flavors and inky black in color, this full bodied wine possesses ample tannins that suggest it will cellar well for many years. Only 147 cases were made.

The 2013 Petit Verdot "Apollo Drive Vineyard - Limited Edition" was aged for 16 months in French oak (30% new, the rest neutral). It comes in at 13.9% alcohol. Like all of Paumanok's offerings this issue, this is most impressive for its balance, its feeling of "suave" and "elegant." Gorgeously constructed and not at all brooding, stern and impenetrable--the way all too many Petit Verdots turn out--this has fine structure, plenty of power on the finish and a tinge of oak in its youth. Yet, more than any one element, what stands out is its graceful mid-palate and its impeccable balance (a repeated theme with these offerings). Seductive, inviting and completely ingratiating, this is a big winner.

Brand for Paumanok Vineyards
Founded in the spring of 1983, our 103 acre estate is entirely owned and managed by Ursula and Charles Massoud, and our three sons. Born and raised in the "Old World", wine has always been a part of our lives and we continue the tradition at Paumanok Vineyards.

Only premium vinifera grapevines are planted, consisting of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The traditional dense planting of the vineyards at 1100 vines per acre produces more concentrated fruit and therefore higher quality wines. For our wines, only estate grown grapes are used and production is limited to fewer than 9000 cases.
