Like Howlin' Wolf and holiday meals, this wine was built for comfort, not for speed. Dark, racy and richly aromatic, this wine is full of deep black fruits and ripe tannins. Rarely bottled as a varietal, Petit Verdot is similar to Malbec in its' dark character, but with more spice and exotic aromas.
