Petit Verdot

$25

Petit Verdot is typically a blending grape used in Bordeaux-style wines, but the grapes were so gorgeous that Winemaker Amy LaBelle couldn’t bear to blend them with others. This bold, dry red wine expresses strong floral and fruit tones with a deep tannin structure that leaves a velvety, lingering finish. LaBelle Petit Verdot pairs perfectly with grilled beef, and is also surprisingly good with dark chocolate. Serve just below room temperature.

Aged in French and American oak barrels for approximately 1 year.

May be cellared up to 10 years.

 

About Petit Verdot:  Petit Verdot is a variety of red wine grape, principally used in classic Bordeaux blends. As a young grape, its aromas are likened to banana or pencil shavings. When it ripens, it presents deep tannin structure, bold color and rich leather/violet tones.
