Virginia Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot is a minor grape used in Bordeaux blends. What I like about the spirit of Virginia winemakers these days is their sense of adventure and experimentation. Having never seen or tried Petit Verdot as a single varietal, I jumped on the adventure train. As an experiment, this wine is interesting. Tart red raspberry, green pepper, and a hint of black pepper. If you take this wine for what you will, as an adventure and an experiment, it’s an interesting pit stop on your wine journey.
