2021 Petit Verdot
Destiny Ridge’s Petit Verdot exhibits a deep, intense ruby color, almost bordering on purple, showcasing its concentration and depth. The opaque and almost brooding appearance in the glass is a window into this dense and powerful wine. Aromas of dark berry, black cherry, plum, cassis, and dark chocolate, mix well with warm spicy notes of black pepper and dried herbs. Balance is found in the levity of lighter more nuanced hints of violet and lavender floral notes. Additional aromas develop with age like clove, licorice, and tobacco. A slight bitterness on the back of the palate, reminiscent of an IPA, keeps this wine interesting and opens up a wide range of food pairing options. The tannins are firm, providing a robust texture that gives this wine depth and age ability. Little Big Man’s expressive mid-palate and moderate finish make food pairings a dream, with so many options on the table, from savory Cuban Mojo style pork, and roasted vegetables with a Verjus vinaigrette, to anything you can put blue cheese on. Decant early to drink with dinner.
