Natalie's Score: 88/100
An attractive red wine made from an obscure red grape that's often part of Bordeaux blends to add colour and heft. Aromas of dark fruit and a savoury mid-palate note. A good grip on the palate, so decant 1 hour. You can't beat the price for the quality. Curious about Petit Verdot as a grape and wine? No better way to understand it than to try it as a stand-alone wine like this one rather than in a blend. Try it with meat lasagna.
Petit Verdot food pairings: pizza.

|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Why not try a lesser known grape tonight? At $16 it's not a huge risk. This is a nicely crafted medium+ bodied wine with attitude. Black fruits, cloves, charred cedar, vanilla, pepper, violets, herbs de Provence. Good length on the elegant warming finish. Tannins are polishing and acidity is medium+. Serve with beef, mature hard cheeses. Decant.
Good everyday red.
Tasted: December 2014
|This Chilean red wine cellars its Petit Verdot in National Monument, the winery's underground cellar in the heart of Santiago. Notes of wild black fruit and spices. Pair with rack of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews|
