First time trying a Petit Verdot

This was my first time trying a Petit Verdot (on its own rather than part of a blend) and I was very pleased. Bold with dark fruit and licorice notes. Very acidic and tannic (which I like). We opened the bottle and let it breathe for about an hour before tasting. It paired very well with the Italian meatlover's pizza we had for dinner.

Delicious!!

Wow!! The Petit Verdots from France are little tight but 638 from Washington does the trick! Very nice, inky refined wine!

Wow, the tannins

Had this wine June 2020 (this is a tardy review), first time as a varietal. I can now see why it is usually used in a blend! After getting used to the early blast of tannins I could really appreciate the big fruit and long finish. Loved it with a New York strip. Actually Coravined the Lot 653 Red Hills Lake County petit verdot for comparison, finding them to be similar, and I will be drinking that one soon after ageing it a little longer (review to come).

Inky, dark, fantastic value

Inky dark in the glass, this is a fantastic value. Of course, when I finally had the courage to try this grape I previously knew as a blending grape, I was pleasantly surprised, and depressed to find that it was sold out...

Blackberry, full taste

On the nose getting hints of mint, blackberry and some florals, maybe violet. Mouthfeel is rich, more black fruit, tense tannins and a slate backdrop, long finish of fruit and very tight and dry. I like this one a lot

Dark and sultry

The color grabs your attention, but the taste keeps it. Dry, dark tree fruit, and some late leather.

Full on delicious

Really dark, opaque – almost black in the glass. The legs are few and far between but they show off the 14.4% alcohol nicely. On the nose there is sweet blackberries, mint, charcoal. The palate is as I hoped- dark, tannic and multilayered. Those blackberries reappear with iodine, violets and licorice. The tannins grip, a lot. They claw at my gums from the beginning to the end. This varietal is normally part of a blend due to its tannic frame, brooding fruit and structure- but I do enjoy it by itself. I get hankerings for a mouthfull of that dark, sweet fruit interlaced with hearty tannins. The mid palate and finish echo the theme nicely with a decent length ending of blackberry, tannins and a touch of oak. Delicious and powerful. 90 points and 5 stars for this $15 effort. Drink till 2026 with hearty meat dishes.

Strong- in a good way!

Big

Cracked this open and let it breathe for a good hour. Spectacular! Lots of dark red fruit. The wet mineral tones are ever so present. This is a great sipper. My only regret is I didn’t buy more. Great find!
