Peju Province Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage reveals a lovely nose with aromas of dark black cherry, bittersweet chocolate and hints of bay leaf. On the palate, the dark garnet wine is rich and concentrated with layers of plum, holiday spice, tobacco and dark cocoa. Velvety tannins provide a long, memorable finish.

The love of farming and a passion for wine brought Tony Peju to the Napa Valley. A series of ideas - starting in his birthplace on the Caspian Sea, then France, England and eventually, Los Angeles -- created the Peju's Napa Valley winery. In 1982, Tony and his wife Herta purchased 30 acres of land in the Napa Valley with the magic ingredient - location. Neighboring vineyards in Rutherford included Robert Mondavi, Inglenook and Beaulieu. Situated between Highway 29 and the Napa River, the acreage included a 1900-era house and rambling vineyards, some 60 or more years old. Looking to the future, Tony and Herta have introduced their two daughters, Lisa and Ariana, to the workings of the wine business. Both of the young women are immersing themselves in all aspects of Peju Winery. Read less

It's a smooth drink, typical of the area.

Not quite the mouthfeel I was looking for, but think it will need a few more years to develop. Harsh tannins initially but mellowed in the open bottle after about an hour. I don't think cab is Peju's star.

Good wine. Hints of earth and tabacco. Rich taste and very good with steak.

A very amiable wine, a Labrador puppy, all fun and tail wagging and quite accessible. Juicy, plummy and earthy with a dash of smoke/licorice it coats the mouth and doesnt let go for a good long time. The "now through 2010" is a bit short though, it is now 2011 and having enjoyed adequate cellaring, it is drinking superbly still and will continue to do so for at least another couple of years- if you can hold off that long. I wouldnt expect much more improvement tho.

Chocolate and fleeting eucalyptus aromas show up on this brilliant Napa Cabernet. Dark stone fruits and spice flavors on the palate lead to a well-structured finish. This is an outstanding red wine that could age beautifully for years.
