The 2016 Spice & Jam Trading Co. Bold Red recently took home a Double Gold medal from the 2018 North of the Gate Wine Competition and a Gold from the 2018 New York International Wine Competition! The Petit Verdot-Zinfandel blend is a celebration of fruit and oak. An explosion of flavor sets this wine apart as a must try. The two grapes that make this wine bring fabulous complementary notes. The Zinfandel is the backbone of the wine with strong fruit flavors and a nice acidity, and the Petit Verdot brings a vibrant color and secondary notes of caramel and toffee. The wine emerges from a few months in oak mellowed with beautiful notes of toffee and caramel.
This wine has great aromas of ripe, red and blackcurrants with fresh strawberries. There are secondary characteristics of tobacco leaf and spice. The wine is juicy and full of great fruit flavors. The spice present in the wine means that it will pair well with a moderate amount of spice. Our experts have been loving it with cajun food.
