2010 Petit Verdot

French for Little Green, there are records of Petit Verdot as early as the late 16th and early 17th centuries. It is speculated that Petit Verdot descended from Balisca, came from the Greeks and/or Romans, via Albania. This 100% varietal wine comes from one of Washington’s most acclaimed sites, Red Mountain. With aromas of blackberry, anise and forest floor, this dark beauty has full firm tannins and a huge structure that would benefit from decanting.
