Qotd: had a few in Virginia this past year at a tasting that were dynamite. Unfortunately they were all done blind so I'm not sure which one was the best

    The best Verdot I ever tasted was out of the barrel at Hanna in Alexander Valley. Purple, plush and ripe. That’s rare for this grape, but Murphy Goode and Rancho Sisquoc get close also.
