2019 marks the third vintage of Washington Petit Verdot that winemaker Pamela Adkins has again mastered. Her two previous Petit Verdot vintages (2016 and 2017) together won 5 Gold medals / a Best in Class / 2 Silver medals / 2 Bronze medals / and the ‘17 was awarded 95-points at the Sunset Magazine International Wine Competition. Yep…that’s 10 awards between only 2 wines. So you’ve gotta think this 2019 is going to be stunning. And it is!
Everything about this wine is BIG! Huge, intense floral aromas of lavender, thyme, violets, and herbs de Provence greet the humble taster. The deep ruby color invites you to gaze at the long legs produced with a few swirls. On the palate, you’ll experience the perfect balance between higher acids (giving the wine mouthwatering juiciness) and refined tannins that produce a dry, balanced, and L-O-N-G finish. In the front palate, you can taste red fruits of cherry and strawberry. As the wine lingers over your palate, the back palate picks up ripe blueberry, then blackberry jam, then all kinds of amazing barrel qualities like cocoa, cinnamon, and hazelnut. This stunner is BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL!
Consider pairing our ’19 PV with a hearty lamb stew, or complex, flavorful dishes like barbeque, mole or smoked meats. Or be adventurous, and pair her with hot or spicy foods like Creole, hot curry, or Thai spiced rice.
However you dress her up – you can expect a gorgeous wine experience with every glass!
