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.
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.
Love this wine. Very flavorful and satisfying. Great price and I will be getting more! Not too dry.
Nice change, not your typical big red
Interesting red wine as noted in the other comments
Flavorful and enjoyable
My first Petit Verdot and will not be my last. Was pleasantly surprised how this wine opened up with a bit of decanting. Deep fruit flavors and a nice finish. Great Value!
I was not real thrilled with this selection. It had a bit of an earthy taste to me. My daughter who shared the bottle with me, did enjoy it. She does like the Syrahes which I do not care for. The wine did get a bit better as I let my glass sit there and breath, but not enough for me to order.
Heavy and Dry, but Florals, not Spice!
Never had a Petit Verdot before, but was quite pleased. It was very dry and a fairly heavy mouthfeel, yet the flavors were fairly light with some floral hints. No significant spice presence that I usually expect from reds this dry and heavy. Very interesting wine - quite good and easy to drink.
Deep and bold and really enjoyable on its own.
Really good Petit Verdot.
Really good Petit Verdot. Defiantly going to buy again
enjoyable wine but not one of the best I've had from CH.
Grape was reported as being bold, however I found it to be rather dull.
Another enjoyable wine!
Enjoying my last glass right now and it is smoother than the first! Smooth and rememberable!
