Petit Verdot is best known as a grape used in the blending of French Bordeaux wines and California Meritage wines. It adds tannin, acid, and color to those blends. By itself, it is a powerful combination of dark berries, chocolate, espresso and leather nuances focused on the front of your palate. Malbec accentuates the fruit on the back side and Cabernet gives it a long finish. Grapes from three Petit Verdot vineyards were used in this blend. Petit Verdot is a unique wine that pairs well with grilled foods, rich sauces and dark chocolate. We produced 170 cases.
