Food Pairings for Moon Mountain Estate Grown Petit Verdot-Cabernet Sauvignon
Most descriptions of Petit Verdot invariably say something to the effect that this cepage is rarely used as a varietal. Perhaps it is time that PV, like its fellow step-child grape Malbec, finds its own niche. No, it will never make a "classic" wine, but is obviously capable, in the right terroir and right hands, of delivering a reasonably priced, satisfying "wine experience". I very much hope that the new owners of this winery continue producing Petit Verdot wines in this style. I love first sips. Immediately following the first sip of this wine, one over-riding thought permeated my mind: green. Certainly lived up to its name sake: "little green". After opening up, there is some dark fruit there, well enough, but there is also considerable spiciness: sage, bay leaf and a bit of pepper, along with the greenness. Noticeable but smooth tannins, hint of oak; respectable finish with notes of pepper. There are also some subtle notes reminiscent of cracklings. Good stuff!
Aromas of sweet tarts, rhubarb, and black cherry, followed by molasses, cedar, and spice....Well balanced with good structure and soft tannins...This wine made an impression....The finish carries on...and on...It would pair well with something off the grill.
