88 POINTS ~ Anthony Gismondi (Oct 7th, 2017)
Our 2014 2014 Spirit (Fortified) is 100% Petit Verdot. This is a full-bodied red wine that offers up ethereal aromas of plum, lilac, violet and sage with gravel-like minerality. On the palate, the wine is dry and full-bodied with high tannin, bold fruit and medium-plus acidity.
Due to the rigid tannin structure and concentrated nature of the 2014 2014 Spirit (Fortified) red wine, foods with plenty of weight, protein, and fat are your best bets.
Consider rich cuts of red meat, well-aged cheese (like Stilton) or wild game. Barbecue, beef stew, roasted rack of lamb and game birds all stand up well to the rich appeal of Petit Verdot.
A glass is not enough, maybe just a half a drink more?
