Peirano Estat the Other Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Once we have received the fruit at the winery, we keep each varietal separate through the entire fermentation and aging process, so each grape can fully express its true character. We then make several blends and sample each one until we have found one that is greater than the sum of its parts. The 2008 blend consists of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Syrah. We found this blend to be the best expression of our little corner of the Lodi Appellation.

Fruit forward. Nose gave much promise then it did not have any staying power. Probably good for someone just getting into reds...

One is immediately struck by the vibrant color of this wine. The aromas of blackberries and plums are complemented by spice, toasty oak and cedar notes. Upon washing this liquid across the palate, a wave of sweet black cherries and boysenberries, with a hint of smoky, dark oak lead to a long, totally seductive, finish. A great expression of this variety, this wine will gently knock your socks off.
