Trinchero Napa 2006 Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot is often used as a blending grape, so finding a Napa vineyard that produces a 100% Petit Verdot is a bit unusual.  This 2006 Trinchero Petit Verdot was an enjoyable start to the evening.  It’s a somewhat lighter, full bodied wine that I think worked really nicely with our Greek appetizers.  For people that don’t live the dry reds, this works well, but certainly isn’t a ‘fruit bomb’, so it’s versatile enough to go with many foods.  Not to use one of the typical wine terms, but I think there was a slight cedar-y finish to it: nice and crisp.
