Another new wine for us—Petit Verdot is a grape that’s finding a home in Washington, particularly Horse Heaven Hills. Typically, this wine is used for blending, but the terroir of Horse Heaven is creating very drinkable, unique Petit Verdots. Our is almost black in the glass—a deep burgundy—with aromas of crushed blueberries drizzled in vanilla. Make no mistake—this is a big wine with firm tannins, but surprisingly smooth on the finish, leaving you earning for another sip. Serve with good aged cheddar, steaks (or lamb chops), prime rib, or chocolate pairings (replace that glass of milk with this the next time you have chocolate cake). Will age well—up to 10 years.
