Our Lumière de Vie 2016 California Petit Verdot displays both a rich color and nose. The wine looks very dense in the glass when poured. The aromas are well-defined, a combination of blackberry, prune and cherry with toasted oak in the finish. A light oak treatment enhances the mouth, providing welcome intensity right from the start. The medium body provides nice and persistent tannins. There is a lot of length, balance and strength in this food-friendly wine.
This wine pairs well with game meat, pork, roast beef or pasta. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon Plum Stuffing.
