Gregory Leon is not only our wine expert and resident sommelier, but the man we always turn to when it comes to our Wine of the Month and food pairing. This month he has paired our 2012 Petit Verdot with this lip smacking BBQ Baby Back Ribs recipe. According to Greg, strong tannins necessitate big fats. The floral and slightly smoky aromas of this grape parallel perfectly with some wood smoke and a sweeter glaze on the ribs. Click here for this recipe.
Dark, inky and full of dark fruity flavors (blackberries, blueberries) with a hint of smoke, our HAKA Petite Verdot begs to be opened with grilled meats. Traditionally only used for blending, 2012 had enough heat to fully ripen our PV so we bottled it as a single varietal. Enjoy 20% off this fabulous wine all month long!
