Gigi's Cuvee utilizes Cabernet Sauvignon for the majority of the blend, followed by Petit Verdot and substituting Petite Sirah for the classic Bordeaux Merlot in this French style Medoc blend. The wine is deep in color, settling into a dark ruby hue, and delivers fruit scents and flavors of cassis, blackberry, dark cherry, vanilla, black cherry, coffee bean, baking spices and licorice. Just like David's daughter "Gigi's Cuvee" is a concentrated, powerful, silky, elegant and spicy wine. Drawing on a fantastic balance of acidity, fruit and tannins, this wine is sure to be a top pick for those craving that classic Old World Bordeaux style. When contemplating food pairings, think meat. Yes, you can pair Gigi's Cuvee with other kinds of food, but you’ll be maximizing flavor the most if you pair with a meat based dish. Pairs nicely with heavy, fattier, saltier and spicier steaks & lamb but has just enough fruit to lend itself wonderfully with leaner and more savory meats like port and even duck.
