Our Gemme Cellars 2016 Petit Verdot was grown in different coastal vineyards of California. This varietal is known to produce wines that are similar to a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. There are some smoky and oaky characters in the attack. Many black fruit flavors such as blackberry, black currant and cherry are present in the nose. These aromas are powerful and concentrated. With this 2016 vintage, we already have some maturity in the mouthfeel. Petit Verdot is a dense wine and displays a lot of fruit and tannins in the body. Balance is very well established with a fairly long finish.
This intense body is built for longevity and food pairing with roasted chicken, pork chops, veal Parmesan or meatloaf. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Pork Marsala.
