week's pick: Passport Series - Petit Verdot
of origin: Washington
used in Bordeaux blends to give colour and aromatics,
Petit Verdot produces a bold, well-structured wine
on its own. Expect intense colour and aromas of vanilla,
cedar and smoke, followed by ripe cherry and blackberry
full-bodied wine has warm undertones of mocha, firm
tannins, and a rich and robust finish.
Experiment with barbequed lamb chops, pork spare ribs,
duck, filet mignon and other rich meats. Hearty casseroles
and mature hard cheeses such as Parmigiano, Grana
Padano and Pecorino Romano also pair well.
The Passport Series of wines is available exclusively
at the Orléans Town Centre Wine Kitz location
on St. Joseph Blvd. near the corner of Prestone Drive.
