Petit Verdot 2016

Petit Verdot 2016

Our Flagship Red Wine

Petit Verdot Paul Shaffer Edition is named after our ever-vigilant and trusty Cellar Master. But Paul’s favorite tipple is anything but petite.

Deep purple in color, Petit Verdot is an aromatically generous wine with notes of violets and dark fruit, transitioning into cigar box and pencil shavings with age. Flavors of blackberry, plum, mulberry and molasses complement a mouthfeel that is unashamedly luxurious in tannic structure.

PAIRINGS: Ribeye Steak, Venison and Juniper Berries
