Brace yourself… for one of the best Petite Verdots you’ll ever try!

Today’s Romeo Vineyards 2009 Sempre Vive Petit Verdot was made by Alison Green Doran, who was mentored early in her career by wine legends Andre Tchelistcheff (of Beaulieu Vineyards fame) and Mary Ann Graff, who was the first woman to be hired by a major California winery (SIMI).

Alison’s considerable talent is apparent at the first sip of this silky, flavor-packed, balanced and delightful wine.

Very aromatic, with perfume of black cherry, black currant, cured meats, violets, blackberry reduction, grilled fig, dark chocolate, dried fall leaves, soft spice and tobacco.

Dark, dense flavors spill onto the palate, with smoky black cherry, molasses, blackberry preserve, plum, grilled Mission fig, baker’s chocolate, smoky spice, dried meat, dark tobacco and black pepper.

Enjoy this wine with our heartiest recommendation. We absolutely love this wine and we’re confident that you will, too.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark purple hues at the heart of the wine, to the glinting ruby red edges. When you spin the wine in the glass, it settles quickly, leaving behind super skinny tears that move very slowly down the glass wall.

Smell:

Black cherry, black currant, cured meats, violets, blackberry reduction, grilled fig, dark chocolate, dried fall leaves, soft spice and tobacco.

Taste:

Smoky black cherry, molasses, blackberry preserve, plum, grilled Mission fig, baker’s chocolate, smoky spice, dried meat, dark tobacco and black pepper.

Finish:

Extended and very plush with a crushed velvet dryness that gradually spreads across the palate. Flavors go on and on and on…

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a lamb stew with green olives, beef Bourguignon, spicy pork medallions with rosemary potatoes or just about any grilled meat.
