John’s February Pick of the Month

By Posted on Mar 16 2009 | By


Rogers Ford Farm Winery
Petit Verdot

Proprietor and winemaker John Puckett has crafted a robust Virginia red using 100% locally grown Petit Verdot grapes.  The wine displays a deep red garnet in the glass and opens with spice and cherry notes on the nose.  Take a moment to linger over the rich aromas.  On the palate, the wine shows black currant notes framed by firm acidity and tannins, highlighting its twelve-month American oak barrel aging.  Consider matching this wine with a hearty lamb stew or beef bourguignon.  As an added bonus, the wine is bottled in a unique, double handled, imported Italian wine bottle.  Drink now through 2011.

Rogers Ford Farm Winery is located 14674 Rogers Ford Road, Sumerduck, VA 22742.  The winery is open Friday through Monday from March until December, and by appointment.  (540) 439-3707.
