Grantwood Winery 2013 Petit Verdot, Walla Walla Valley, $22

By on August 25, 2015

grantwood-winery-logoJoe Grant and Doris Wood may well be the tiniest producers in the Walla Walla Valley, and their winery just west of downtown Walla Walla has a consistent fruit source for all of its wines — McKibben-managed Les Collines Vineyard in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Their small lots are beyond bargains in this tony town, and their latest version of this traditional Bordeaux blender is deliclious with aromas of black olive, dark chocolate and blackberry, followed by scrumptious flavors of plum, blueberry and black tea. Grantwood’s previous version of this wine won a gold medal earlier this year at the Pacific Rim International Wine Competition, and this very young edition captured a gold medal at the 2015 Walla Walla Valley Wine Competition.
