2007 Petit Verdot, Lonesome Springs Vineyard

 

We have always been fascinated by classic Bordeaux blends and love to work with each component. Petit Verdot, when blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, adds tannins, color and flavor to the blend, so we set out to explore it on its own. Our 2007 Petit Verdot is another of our limited production wines made primarily with our Anvil Société members in mind. This dark, garnet-colored beauty is a little glass of heaven.

On the nose, subtle hints of rich spices, eucalyptus and flint flowing into rich aromas of blackberry and dark plum that heighten the anticipation of what is to follow.  Your first sip confirms this voluptuous wine is full-bodied with intense flavors of black cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate with subtle hints of spice and chocolate. Our 2007 Petit Verdot is velvety and all-encompassing on the palate with balanced acidity and nice tannins. The finish is long and sultry taking you on an exotic journey.

When it comes to food pairing, Duck Breast with Crème de Cassis or Meat Loaf with Creamy Onion Gravy would be amazing. But please make sure the cook has a full glass of 2007 Petit Verdot at all times for inspiration!

Santé!
