2018 Viv label Petit Verdot

A rustic, big shouldered Petit Verdot made with grapes from Washington's Columbia Valley

About this wine

Viv, a French root word which means “to live / to be alive” also happens to be shorthand for our winemaker’s name, who, in her own words has this to say about the project: “Having the courage to follow my truth, and moving forward as myself means that I’ll be around for a long time to come. To be alive, indeed. And that I’ll be around for a long time to come means that there’s more time to do good, meaningful things. $5 from the sale of every bottle of this VIV label wine will be donated to the Q Center, an organization that provides a variety of types of support to queer and transgender communities in and around Portland, Oregon - a cause both incredibly personal and incredibly important to me - in an effort to do just that.” -Vivianne Marks, Winemaker Our 2018 Petit Verdot Balances notes of dried cranberry, cedar, earth, spice, and vanilla against well structured tannins. This rich, dark wine pairs well with lamb, portobello mushrooms, pasta, olives, and the ones you love!Alder Ridge VineyardColumbia Valley, Washington State47 Cases Produced
