Dusty ruby color. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, rich milk chocolate and coconut, and dried and candied violet with a round, crisp, dry medium-to-full body and a warming, captivating, medium-long finish that presents suggestions of plum, blackberry, chocolate, and bacon jam with medium, chewy tannins and light oak flavor. A wonderful and rich table wine to impress your dinner guests.

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.
