With a literal translation of "little green one". Petit Verdot is usually blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. On its own, Petit Verdot produces an intensely rich and structured wien with spicy fruit flavours and violet undertones with firm and persistent tannins that provide for cellaring potential.
