Peirano Estate Merlot Lodi Six Clones Merlot Other California 2007

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 2006 blend consists of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% each Viognier. We found this blend to be the best expression of our little corner of the Lodi Appellation.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon/30% Merlot/10% Syrah. Smoky, dry berry scent. Spicy and dry, with a cherry/plum finish.

Medium body with a very interesting flavor profile. Cab, Merlot and Syrah blend with nice smoke and spice. Great bottle for the price.

Sweet berry fruit and low tannins. An approachable, everyday red.

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.

Tasting Notes:

One is immediately struck by the vibrant color of this wine. The aromas of apples, pears, tropical fruit, and a whiff of bubble gum are complemented by hints of coconut and vanilla. Lush flavors of fresh ripe pears, apples, tropical fruit and homemade lemon pie lead to a long, totally seductive, finish.
