Daven Lore Winery 2012 Petit Verdot
October 12, 2014 Updated 42 minutes ago
Appellation: Horse Heaven Hills
Prosser vintner Gordon Taylor definitely has dialed in his Petit Verdot program using Double Canyon Vineyard as his 2010 vintage of this Bordeaux variety earned a spot in Great Northwest Wine’s Top 100 list last year. Opulent oak creates a note of toasted coconut, crushed walnut and chocolate sauce with lots of fruitiness of black cherry, raspberry and Western serviceberry. The pour is dense and dark, bold and yet balanced with mouthfilling flavors of plum, boysenberry and blueberry. Rated "Outstanding!" by Great Northwest Wine. (14.5 percent alcohol)
Cases produced: 114
Food pairings: Taylor suggests enjoying this with bold foods such as dry-rubbed BBQ lamb, spicy Italian sausage or gyros.
