Producing full-bodied, rustic and deeply colored reds, Petit Verdot is one of the original Bordeaux varieties. Its bold structure, color and aromatics allow it to make a significant difference in Bordeaux Blends—even in modest amounts. While it isn’t planted in Bordeaux in great quantities anymore, it is showing a small revival in well-tended vineyards there. Petit Verdot can also produce phenomenal single-varietal wines in the hotter and drier subregions of California, Australia, South America and Washington State.

Tasting Notes for Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot is a dry, red wine. It has intriguing qualities of blackberry, plum, blueberry or black cherry as well as violets and dried sage. Thick skins result in a highly structured wine with tannins ranging from smooth to grainy.

Perfect Food Pairings for Petit Verdot
