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.
Red meat winner
This was such a pleasant surprise. Bold and delicious. We had with steak and immediately thought it was made for that.

A real bargain for a fat juicy red. Goes great with steak and burgers.
This was really good. I had not heard of this grape. Was a huge hit.
Dark and rich! Strong cherry notes.
My first single varietal petit verdot and I was pleasantly surprised
Enjoying this one right now!
Deliciously fruity - black cherry!
Enjoyed this wine while sitting on the back porch watching the dogs play
Decent wine and as is the case with nearly all CH wines, a value at this price.
Great that CH can find unique grape varietals like petit Verdot, Mouvedre, and cab franc at a decent price so we can afford to experiment.
If you have not had PV, it’s a super dense, somewhat astringent varieryal, often used to add some body to limp cabs and merlots.
Not for the faint of heart.
This is a lovely little treasure. Price was a steal! Already purchased more.
