Peju Province Winery Merlot Napa Valley 2001

Member Review by ruymann:

A lovely balanced wine. I have overlooked this wine for a few years in my cellar and opened it on a whim last night. Perfect for drinking now. Beautiful merlot grapes, mild tannins, gorgeous color and finish. Complimented an herb marinated flank steak with tomato, fresh mozz and pesto salad as the accompaniment. Yum!

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

I bought this wine in 2004 but just cracked it yesterday. Strong cherry fruit on the nose. A bit oaky with some powerful tannins. I believe I could have cellered it another few years easily. Enjoyable but potentially better after a few years.
