Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Aromas of blackberry, vanilla and a hint of violets with a touch of toast. Taste – This full bodied wine carries firm but mature tannins with pleasing flavors of berries and plum. The oak aging adds a slight toast and vanilla nuance, but does not over power. The depth, structure and acid balance, proves that this is a unique variety for Virginia and is capable of long term aging. Food Pairing – A great match for heavier meats as well as game. This wine will age well. It can be enjoyed now and over the next five years.

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.
