Petit Verdot

The red Petit Verdot grape makes rich, concentrated wine with deep color, high tannins, violet aromas and spicy flavors. These Petit Verdot characteristics make the grape a useful accent to many wine blends, particularly in the variety’s native Bordeaux.

In the New World, many winemakers, including some in California, also use Petit Verdot to enrich Bordeaux-style blends. But others, as far away as Australia and as close to home as Virginia, are exploring the potential of Petit Verdot to make elegant and rich varietal wines.
