Like many grapes grown in Virginia, Petit Verdot originated in the Bordeaux region of France. It's usually used as a blending varietal there, however, which is why you may not have seen it too often before as a stand-alone wine.
In Virginia, this little grape ripens perfectly on the vine, and this 100% Petit Verdot wine does not disappoint!
Especially now that it's had time to age in the bottle, 2015 Petit Verdot is a dynamic wine with lots of fruit flavors to keep your palate intrigued.
You'll notice subtle hints of black pepper, with flavors of vanilla followed by notes of blackberry and sage.
