Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details

Description: 15 months aging in a combination of French & American oak gives this rich, garnet-colored wine a softness and roundness that is balanced by a sound tannic structure. Capable of pairing with bold, grilled flavors and strong, blue cheese.

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.
