Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details
Price: $19.99 per bottle

Description: A popular Bordeaux varietal that has shown great potential in Virginia, this is our fourth vintage of Petit Verdot. The grapes were fermented half in small bins and half with the French Delestage method, and the fruit was then aged in French and American oak. Deep color, rich flavors of fruit and spice, and smooth tannic structure make this varietal one of our most popular.

Varietal Definition
Petit Verdot:
Petite Verdot is one of the five noble Bordeaux varietals, essentially acting as the nuts and bolts in most Bordeaux blends. With intense color and racy flavors, this wine possesses elements of pencil shavings, dark fruit presentation and a subtle complexity, which can be appreciated by even the most discerning palate.
