Petit Verdot | First Frost
With the first frost in the fall, the vines drop their leaves and the fruit is at its peak. The grapes’ color, aroma, and flavor is the most intense at this time, allowing us to craft First Frost Vidal. By halting fermentation, we are able to keep some residual sweetness in the wine, bottling the last days of summer to ease your way into the brisk fall. As the nights grow colder, you will appreciate the warmth-giving quality of Petit Verdot, our robust, full-bodied red. This is the perfect wine to accompany dinners in front of the fire. Make First Frost and Petit Verdot part of your harvest celebrations.
1. Rogers Ford First Frost:
Harvested at first frost this fruit was at the peak of perfection, producing a crisp, intense, honey-like citrus fruit-finish wine. Moderately sweet, enjoy this wine with cheese, a spicy Asian dish or even as dessert with cheese cake.
2. Rogers Ford Petit Verdot:
This Virginia-grown Petit Verdot is rich and complex, deeply pigmented with firm tannins. Aged in oak, this unfiltered wine promises a good future as well as being enjoyable today. PV goes well with hearty fare; serve at room temperature to appreciate its robust character.
