Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of dark plum, butterscotch, and cedar. Flavors of coffee, clove and chocolate.
Vineyard Notes
Heavy shale and limestone slopes with south/southeast aspect between 1000'-1200' elevation. Dry farmed using sustainable practices. Limestone rocks are piled under all the vines providing light reflection on to the fruit and warming during the night time hours.
Production Notes
Individual small lot fermentations in bin or tank. Some lots allowed to age on skins after primary fermentation for up to 3 weeks. Aged in French oak for 18 months - 30% new French oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes
2014 was a good growing season in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the season. The fruit came in with good phenolics and balanced chemistry. Red fruit came in with small berries, due to the lack water, resulting in rich, tannic wines.

The 2014 Petit Verdot is wonderfully complex and one of the best wines I've had at Rappahannock Cellars. Kudos to the winemaker for creating this exceptional red wine.
