2007 Napa Valley Estate Petit Verdot

by David on August 19, 2010

Petit Verdot bottleThe well-drained, rocky soil and warm, sunny afternoons here on our 9.5-acre Estate make it the ideal place for the tough-skinned, slow ripening Petit Verdot. With just three rows, total, this wine is exclusive to our Wine Club.

Flavor profile: Dark, dense and luscious: Black plum, boysenberry, tobacco, sweet anise, vanilla and toasty oak with velvety tannins.
2007 Vintage: Classic vintage, widely recognized as the finest since 1997, yielding small, flavorful berries and outstanding balance.

Drink now and through: 2015

Food Suggestions
The deep, dark flavors are a natural with slow-cooked dishes like short ribs or your favorite pot roast. The richness of prime rib or rack of lamb work well with the lush black fruit. Try a glass with Colleen’s recipe for Bacon-Cured Fillet Mignon with Shallot Sauce.
