Petit Verdot 2019
Virginia Governor's Cup 2022 - Gold Medal Winner
Our single varietal 2019 Petit Verdot is a beautiful example of why we love this grape so much. We age this wine in a blend of French and American oak barrels to enhance its complexity, bringing out its rich aromas of boysenberry, black olive and tobacco leaf and highlighting fruit flavors on the palate of blackberry and pomegranate seed. Its finish is dry, with medium tannins and with notes of pepper. This lovely wine pairs well with rich meat dishes, spicy foods and a variety of hard and semi-soft cheeses.
Nose: boysenberry, violet, black olive, tobacco leaf
