TASTING NOTE: Petit Verdot rarely appears as a varietal wine, and even rarer still as the foundation for rosé. You can expect this intriguing wine to be forward, with snappy, bright red fruit and an inviting, food-friendly acidity and texture. Pair it with salmon and grilled veggies, or simply sip and contemplate. Price $ 14.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
