Petit Verdot translates close to “little green one” most likely because this grape is a late-ripening, warm climate variety originally from Bordeaux . This varietal is able to show its true potential in the Texas High Plains. With aromatics of light blueberry, violet and lilac, this heavy hitter holds true to its 100% darkness description. The palate exhibits flavors of poached black fruit, violet, and a touch of smoke from the neutral French barrels. The smooth fruit finish reaches your toes.
