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.
Great after decanting
I recommend decanting before enjoying. A very interesting, unique wine with gorgeous color and rich in tannins.
Delicious blackberry notes. Sophisticated after taste. Has to breathe before it can be enjoyed.
This was my first Petit Verdot and I must say this is a very drinkable everyday wine. I can't wait to try more of this same style.
Really nice wine with blackberry jam notes. A perpect every day wine at this price point. I will definitely buy again, and i plan to explore more petit verdot.
This was lighter than a cab, but we really enjoyed it. Went very well with Mediterranean salmon. Great value, will probably purchase more.
I think that this wine was good not great. We had it with some roast pork. I'm hoping it get better with some bottle time.
Working on my second case. Its a very good, drinkable red with full ody.
A very nice surprise; never had it as a single grape, always as a blending component. Pares well with lots of meats, including Thai chicken.
I, also, never had a Petit Verdot before. What a pleasant surprise! In my opinion, it was a bit lighter than a Cabernet, but more robust than a Pinot Noir.
Ok for an every day red
Weak aroma and taste, with a thin color.
That was a surprise!
Wow That was a surprise. Very smooth and a great vlaue at $15. A very pleasant surprise!
