Petit Verdot is a small grape with a naturally higher skin-to-juice ratio and darker color. These smaller, more intense clusters are a bit harder to ripen than Cabernet and more sensitive to mildew and frost, which has limited its appeal amongst growers. However, the climate and soils of Washington state’s high desert are ideal environs for this rare grape, and here it shines.
Sourced from a small, boutique producer in Red Mountain, Lot 638 is a purpose-built, single-vineyard designate Petit Verdot from one of the most respected vineyards in the Yakima Valley. Aged in French oak barrels and built for a $40+ price point, it’s a hell of a deal at $15 and screaming for a juicy ribeye.
We have never had a petit Verdot before this bottle and we have a new favorite! So smooth .
Smooth wonderful tasting.
Something lighter than a Cab
I enjoy this wine when I want something other than the full bodied Cab. The fruity flavors appeal to me. A great value.
Really good drinking red!
I was pleasantly surprised at the great flavor complexity buy not overwhelmed like some of the cabs. Two thumbs up.
This wine has strong and smooth flavor. I taste blackberries, plum and lots of tomatoes. It doesn't have much pepper. I would recommend it with juicy homemade burgers.
A joy to drink.
This is exactly how a Petit Verdot should taste: dense, with a lovely finish that exhibits its terroir.
nice, and innovative ...
Not many wineries are producing varietal Petit Verdot -- so it's a special compliment that Cam & Company have tracked this down. I only bought a few bottles, and wish I'd purchased more. Inky, dark, smooth, and a great food wine.
Try it for something different
Interesting wine but not my favorite.
My Substitute for a Pinot Noir
I like this wine a lot. It has intense flavors and goes with everything. It's a steal at $15. I've had the VA version and must say I like the WA version better.
