I Heart Petit Verdot

You could say Petit Verdot had me from hello (okay, maybe the first pour). I still remember standing in the Linden Vineyards tasting room where the love affair began. At the time, Linden was one of the few producers in Virginia bottling Petit Verdot as a single varietal wine. Primarily used in Bordeaux blends, the grape has steadily risen in popularity, and now stands on its own.

I recently received a Petit Verdot from Canyon Wind Cellars (see my earlier review). I raved about the quality of their wines, and as expected, the 2007 Petit Verdot didn’t disappoint. In fact, it was so good, I didn’t write a single note. I just wanted to relax and enjoy this Colorado gem. A balanced, focused, and rich wine that is a must buy ($24.95) for my fellow PV lovers! Cheers!

  1. Interest to hear a lover of Petite Verdot. I know the winemaker over at Alpha Omega(Jean Hoefleger) makes a 100% petite verdot under his own label which is rather interesting if you can find it.

  2. Thanks for the recommendation and for stopping by! I’ll have to see if I can find this PV online. It’s not easy to find 100% Petit Verdot wines, so I’ll definitely be on the lookout! Cheers!
