Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Virginia’s new pop trendy red grape wine. Unique — this varietal usually is a “blend-in” for Bordeaux wines to adjust color and then only in small percentages. In Virginia however, our winemakers are bringing this grape to the forefront and bringing it on boldly. At least 14 wineries make Petit Verdot in the Dominion. We are doing our part. Try this wine, you will be enamoured.

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.
