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.
Really enjoyed this Petit Verdot
Always enjoy this PV. Always buy several bottles.
Unusual to drink this wine by itself. It is different and very tasty. Can't say I could be a fan but definitely worth trying for a change.
One of my Favorites
Just a real nice full bodied wine. Deep thick color, really great with steaks and BBQ, and for the price it can't be beat.
A great change of pace
A really great excuse to try something other than another cabernet, this wine has a gorgeous dark color with flavors of blackberry, plum and interesting hints of herbs and floral notes.
My new favorite CH wine! Great immediately out of the bottle with taste that is complex but balanced with dark, rich flavor. Great pivot from a Cab
A definite keeper
I didn't really know what to expect as I had never had a Petit Verdot but after watching the video I decided to order a couple of bottles. And I am glad I did as it is smooth with plenty of dark fruit. Will be getting more.
I was not sure what to expect since I’m new to reds but pleasantly surprised. Nice complement with a sweet treat. Will definitely be purchasing more of this one.
A tame petit Verdot
Don’t be afraid, this Verdot is quite embraceable
Have not had many Petit Verdots but really liked this one. Robust with a little fruit. Very full bodied . First taste blackberries and black plum. This wine would be very difficult to find in upstate NY. It is great that CH offers different wines like this.
Very nice Petit Verdot! I got a mouthful of vanilla. I always enjoyed this grape as part of a blend in some of my favorite Bordeaux's, but I am really happy it is produced as a stand alone.
