Petite Verdot is one of Bordeaux’s classic black grape varieties. This rich and age-worthy varietal ripens on the vine even later than Cabernet Sauvignon, a detriment that caused many grape farmers to abandon
growing it altogether. In the 1990s Petite Verdot has enjoyed a revival of sorts in both Bordeaux and in California. The wonderful Gold Medal-winning Edgewood 1996 Petite Verdot ranks among the best available in California. “A nice crimson-red color bursting with a vibrant cherry-berry mixture. A lavish mouthful of berries and dried cherries that extends into a nice, supple finish,” the winery tasting notes report. Try with hearty beef stew or grilled lamb chops.
