Indigo color. Aromas and flavors of blueberry compote, baking spices, chocolate covered blueberries, and potpourri with a velvety, lively, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, charming, medium-length finish conveying impressions of blueberry, spiced coconut, vanilla and cocoa, and potpourri with medium, coating tannins and light oak flavor. Vibrant and beautifully aromatic, this is a delicious example of Petit Verdot shining in the spotlight.

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.
