Veritas "Paul Shaffer 7th Edition" Petit Verdot 2015 Review

If you are a fan of Petit Verdot, then you need to be paying attention to Virginia. This grape shines here in the hills of the Shenandoah, and when done right it is a treat. Veritas is showing the potential of this grape with this well balanced varietal wine. Dark, ripe plum and bramble fruit on the nose along with forest floor (like a forest in October) and a touch of vanilla from the oak. The acidity is also just right, which is not common with this grape, allowing all of these aromas to coincide with each other in harmony. It is a bit pricey, and you have to order it from the winery, but, again, if you are a Petit Verdot fan, you’ll love it.
