Grapes Less Traveled

This list is for the adventurous types out there or for the seasoned wine drinker who is simply tired of the same varietals over and over and over again.  All the wines on this list will either be of a relatively unknown varietal or a relatively familiar varietal that is usually only seen in blends.

Elegant might not be the first word that jumps to your mind when thinking about a 100% Petit Verdot but St. Supery is nothing but. Not to say it isn't also a fairly big wine with persistent yet very ripe tannins. This wine definitely has weight in every part of it but it carries that weight well, think Gothic Cathedral. Blackberry jam, clove, cinnamon, cedar and tobacco all lifted up by a nice underlying acidity. This wine started me on my search for lesser known varietal bottlings.
