Food Pairings for Trinchero Petit Verdot Central Park West Vyd. St. Helena
External Reviews for Trinchero Petit Verdot Central Park West Vyd. St. Helena
The grapes for the 2007 Petit Verdot come from a choice 3-acre block in Trinchero's Central Park West Vineyard. This vineyard, named in a nostalgic nod to the New York City origins of the Trinchero family, is located at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This vineyard is a level site with deep, loamy soils, good sun exposure and excellent air circulation—the ideal situation for producing classic Napa Valley Bordeaux varietals. Winemaker Mario Monticelli says Petit Verdot is most often used in blends, but he really enjoy making (and drinking) this wine on its own. This wine has a deep inky purple color, violet, lavender and coffee aromatics and a velvety mouthfeel with luscious plum flavors. As 100% Petit Verdot you really get a sense of the power of this varietal and thanks to its valley floor origins, with rich soil and good sun exposure, its tannins are nicely in balance. Aged 16 months in French oak. Very limited!
