Petit Verdot is a red wine grape variety that is mostly used in traditional Bordeaux blends. It ripens much later than the other varieties in Bordeaux, sometimes too late, and as a result, it has fallen out of favor in its native land. When it ripens, it adds tannin, color, and flavor to the blend in small quantities. Petit verdot has gained popularity among New World winemakers, where it ripens more consistently and can be made into single varietal wines. It can also be used to’stiffen’ Cabernet Sauvignon blends’ mid palate.Link to here... | Derived from 'Petit Verdot' on Wikipedia
