Peju Province Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve Estate Bottled 2005

Member Review by Fred Swan:

This is an intriguing wine interwoven with contrasting flavors working magic together. There are baked red cherries, fresh red currant, cinnamon candy, smoke, dried meat, savory spice and dark, dried flowers on the nose. The fresh palate has medium-plus body and slightly grippy tannins of fine powder. Slightly sweet, chewy red cherries are surrounded by loads of savory spice, dried meat and dried thyme. 93pts

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

Somewhat murky prune color in the glass. Fairly complex nose—oaky vanilla, tarry, green herb. Initial (may have been biased by the color), raisin, dried currant. Considerable mineral or graphite mid-to-rear palate. Tannins are, presumably, quite resolved. Acid adds refreshness and really helps, but an unfortunate bitterness (alcohol?) detracts. I’m not going to say that this is a horrible wine, but it seems disjointed. Aging should have harmonized the components. Instead it seems that each one is going its own way.
