This blend is simple, and very good. I purchased at the recommendation of an elderly and enthusiastic female wine associate at Total Wines (MD Corridor). She identified it as a terrific table wine for weekdays, a good table wine. Her assessment was correct.
The Almodi Petit contains 34% syrah, 28% grenache, 20% samso (carignan or cinsault), 18% merlot.
This is a low acid, fruit forward wine with 14.5% alcohol content by volume. Smooth and very drinkable. The flavor dissipates rapidly. This could be a dangerous wine at a free flowing dinner party. Or happy hour. Would be great for a picnic.
We enjoyed the wine with a delicious cheese board. It paired very well. From most favorite to least, see pairing notes:
1) Brie - completely removed the acidity and accentuated the fruit in the wine
2) Smelly Virginia cheese which tastes like smoke gouda, only much more complex and moody - delicious fruit and cheese fusion
3) Goat cheese - again blended well with wine
4) Aged white cheddar - transformed cheese into a more buttery flavor.
Delicious wine to pair with cheese!
