2018 Estate Petit Verdot
While 2018 gave most of Virginia its challenges, the 2018 Estate Petit Verdot stands head and shoulders above the rest and is comprised entirely of our estate-grown mountain fruit. With our newest label, made by Aimee Willow Designs, this wine is truly is a piece of art. While historically used as a blending component in Bordeaux, this grape is finding a natural home in Virginia where it shines as a star grape, and based on its natural suitability for our climate and soils, it has considerable potential to expand the prestige of our winegrowing region. Here, the addition of Cabernet Franc and nearly 18 months in barrel have helped add considerable depth to the wine.
85% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc.
