Petit Batard is the illegitimate offspring of the Xtant Cabernet. A small production winery in the Napa Valley. Jeff Gaffner (Hestan, Saxon Brown) has been making the wines for some years now and the “Dollar Cost Average” formula is always applied here. I would call this a “Great wine for your Buck!” The owners are third generation winery owners and winemakers so expertise is key here.

On the nose you are greeted by gorgeous aromas of black currant, anise and chocolate. This medium to full bodied Proprietary Red blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 1% Malbec taste a lot more expensive than its price tag! The wine is rich body and juicy in flavor, with the right balance of fruit and acid on the mid-palate. The wine is supple and silky and easy to drink now with a good 10 years of cellar potential left.
