undefined, null

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

Roasted pork or grilled lamb kabobs, as well as barbeque and Mole dishes are wonderful. Hard and salty cheeses such as Pecorino, Manchego or aged cheddar can make fun pairings alongside Petit Verdot.
