Dark violet color. Bright, fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of blackberry chutney, honeydew, and vanilla nougat with a supple, tart, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, brisk cranberry, tomato, roasted carrots and beets, and nuts finish with firm, woody tannins and moderate oak. A dry, firm red for the table with meats.

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.
