Peju Province Winery Zinfandel Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKER NOTES: The Zinfandel was harvested Aug. 2005 from 100% Estate Persephone Vineyard fruit. The wine was aged in American Oak barrels for 10 months with 10% new Oak; the balance of the cooperage between 1 and 4-year-old barrels. The wine was bottled unfined. 100% Zinfandel. SENSORY DESCRIPTION: Dark purple and garnet in color with aromas of raspberry, cranberry, dried cherry, and clove. Bright, blackberry jam gives way to a round, spicy impression on the palate. Big, bold tannins give this wine a long, lingering 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
