2018 Quail Hollow Lodi, California Petit Verdot
This amazingly complex wine from California’s Lodi district will stand up to and complement “big foods.”
About This Wine:
Because, even when used in small quantities such as 1 or 2 percent, it can make a big difference in the finished wine. It can lend an intriguing spice quality, adding a layer of enjoyment. Some have likened it to the pepper on the steak; even the best cut of beef benefits from a shake or two from the pepper mill.
While it’s rare to see a single-variety Petit Verdot wine, this tough, thick-skinned grape is known for producing richly concentrated, age-worthy red wines.
The 2018 Quail Hollow Petit Verdot, crafted from grapes grown in the Lodi district of California, is a youthful and nicely layered wine that can be enjoyed now, but also could be laid down for a few years. Savor it solo and dazzle your palate, or serve it with equally “big” food for a memorable culinary experience.
