Varietal: Petit Verdot
A late ripening Bordeaux varietal, that is still grown to a small extent in the region with most plantings located in the Medoc (left bank). It's a useful grape for the vigneron capable of surviving rot brought on by humid conditions thanks to it thick skins. When ripe it can make concentrated, tannic wines worthy of extended maturation and can also contribute a spicy note as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon. The grape can also be found occasionally, as a varietal wine in California and parts of Chile and Argentina.

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: Virginia

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
