Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: Aromas of violets and cherries combine with smoky, spicy flavors; subtle tannins; and a black pepper finish in this luscious, full-bodied red. Wonderful pairing with a simple cheese tortellini and marinara sauce or a heavy beef dish.

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.
