Perky Petit Verdot 2014
A smoldering, dark, pure mouthful of rare Petit Verdot called Perky because it is upbeat, lively and positive, always up for games and activities and great with all kinds of food enjoyed at the game.
In the mouth it starts as a giant of a wine yet through the mid-pallet it ends up silky smooth making it a totally enjoyable wine to sit and sip.
Perky pairs well with spicy foods and it is a natural fit for rich meat dishes such as grilled steak, spicy pork, veal, lamb and all types of game and sausage. Naturally it is also perfect with hard and semi hard cheeses.
A great wine to cellar. You should keep Perky stored well for at least three years before opening, decant it when you do and only share it with people you love.

A difficult grape to grow, this rare variety is typically the last harvested, sometimes as much as two weeks after Cabernet Sauvignon. Characteristically Petit Verdot has high acidity and a light aromatic character. We have coaxed from this pure Petit Verdot a dark garnet color with a hint of banana brulee, violet and leather on the nose.
French Oak 100%; Regime: 35% new; 35% one-use; 30% neutral
