Peirano Estate Vineyards the Other Red Blend Lodi 2014
One is immediately struck by the vibrant color of this wine. The aromas of black cherry, raspberry, candied fruit and dried cranberries are complemented by spicy, toasty oak notes. Upon washing this liquid across the palate, a wave of sweet dried cherries, cranberry, and raspberries, with a hint of light toast, leads to a long, totally seductive, finish. This wine has a “too die for” rich velvety mouth-feel. The blend gives a great expression of each of the grape varieties, marrying all those individual characteristics to produce a wine that will gently knock your socks off. ‘The Other’ is a perfect accompaniment to a variety of cuisines.
Nestled between the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Lodi has an ideal Mediterranean climate with deep, rich, sandy-loam soils and abundant quality water. Lance Randolph, fourth generation Peirano, winemaker, and grower uses the best of Giacomo Peirano’s, Lance’s great grandfather, farming methods and implements new techniques to create the best of “Old World Meets New World” viticulture practices.
Editorial Reviews for Peirano Estate Vineyards the Other Red Blend Lodi
Savory and fruity aromas of dark baking spice, raspberry and strawberry with notes of blossom, fresh dewy earth and a touch of cherry. Well integrated palate with harmonious red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and red currant, a bit tart but easy drinking and approachable with soft tannins and a violet, blueberry finish with good balance.
