Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot Wine Details
Price: $32.95 per bottle

Description: Vintage 2002. Made only in the best vintages, this second edition of our 100% Petit Verdot is a unique and powerful cuvee that is soft rich and round on the palate yet finishes with an enormous tannic grip. It is unfined and unfiltered to preserve the very essence of the grape. The wine exhibits flavors of orange flowers, cassis, black currant, toast, bacon fat and rosemary and thyme. It pairs well with heavily sauced game and red meats, and can be enjoyed now or over the next five years. 90 cases.

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.
