2007 Petit Verdot

Price: $25

Chris Pearmund—one of the hardest working guys in Virginia wine—has found the time to create a solid rendition of what could be Virginia’s next big red wine grape. Petit Verdot is a classic blending grape, but here is an example of a 100% varietal requiring no other reds to enhance its flavor. This robust wine has layers of blackberry, black cherry and spice on the palate. There’s nothing petite about this Petit. Stocks of this reserve wine are limited so head over to the eponymous Pearmund Cellars to score a few bottles. And don’t forget the baby back ribs on your return home.

Pearmund Cellars is surrounded by its beautiful vineyards and is located at 6190 Georgetown Road, Broad Run, VA 20137. The winery is opened seven days a week, 10am to 6 pm.
