Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details
Price: $32.00 per bottle

Description: This 100% Petit Verdot has a very beautiful, deep red-purple color. This wine is very powerful and well-balanced with flavors of violet, black fruit and spice. It is uncommon to make a 100%Petit Verdot. The tannins of this wine are still angled but will become smoother in the bottle in less than one year. Doukénie's 2007 Petit Verdot can be paired wonderfully with aged cheeses and rich barbecue.

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.
