More about this wine from Paso Robles, CA
Petit Verdot is a bold grape - like, super bold. Which is why traditionally it is used in very small quantities as a blending grape in its native France. But this one from Broken Earth is not only an undiluted bottle of boldness, it’s also from the Golden State of California. Let’s just say this isn’t the type of bottle you’d bump into at a supermarket, but rather an edgy gallery opening for your weird college roommate.

This wine tastes like laying in a pile of freshly raked autumn leaves eating blueberries straight out of the carton while wearing a terrycloth, navy blue Juicy sweatsuit. Freshly grated nutmeg and green cantaloupe rinds. Wet green tea leaves and morning air in late autumn near a forest that surrounds a lake. Aromas of canned cranberry sauce and wet lake dock wood.
How to drink it

While...

Laying in the wet sand, on a hot day, watching the waves.

Eating...

This dish is as hearty as they come (don't let its meatless-ness fool you), but this musty red can take it!
