Black garnet color. Aromas and flavors of plum, serrano ham, black pepper, and dry rub spices with a tannic, tart, dry-yet-fruity full body and a warming, interesting, medium-length finish manifesting suggestions of green tomato and cranberries with light oak flavor. Instantly appealing aromas beacon one to a glass of this bright and ageable Petit Verdot.

Petit Verdot

Wine Glass Cabernet.jpg
Serve in a Cabernet Wine Glass
Petit Verdot is a red Bordeaux variety, one of five permitted in a Bordeaux classified wine. It is almost never seen as a stand-alone variety in this region, instead it is a blending component, used primarily to add color to the wine.

The grape's deep, inky purple hue is quite remarkable and perhaps for that reason, it has attracted a handful of producers in California as a stand-alone wine. It is also used in small amounts as a blending grape in certain powerful California reds. The grape is also grown in Chile and Spain.

The flavors are of blackberry, black cherry and plum along with light black spice. Tannins are moderate as is acidity. Pair a Petit Verdot with robust dishes, be it game birds or venison.
