Ingleside’s Petit Verdot 2014 is featured in the 2017 Virginia Governor’s Case
Congratulations to our vineyard and winemaking teams on our recent awards in the 2017 Virginia Governor’s Cup Competition. Our Petit Verdot 2014 received a Gold Medal and was also selected to be part of the 2017 Virginia Governor’s Case, which represents the 12 top scoring wines in the Competition!
Over the years, Petit Verdot has become one of our flagship wines and the 2014 vintage is a fine example of this. It is a bold, Bordeaux-style Petit Verdot with dark cherry and blackcurrant notes on the nose. Structured notes of raspberry, black fruit and spice dominate on the palate. Rich in texture with well-balanced acidity, this wine will age gracefully.
We received the following awards in this year’s Governor’s Cup competition:
GOLD – Petit Verdot 2014
SILVER – Chardonnay Reserve 2015
SILVER – Left Bank 2014 (not yet released)
SILVER – Right Bank 2014 (not yet released)
