2013 Peju Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage : 2013
Country : USA
Region : Napa Valley
Classic Cabernet aromas of ripe dark cherry, raspberry and vanilla infuse the glass of this rich, ruby wine. Beautifully balanced and elegant on the palate this 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon features supple tannins complemented by flavors of juicy forest berries, California almonds and molasses. With a round, velvety finish this wine is delicious now and will continue to mature for the next 5- 7 years.
In 1983, with dreams of raising their young family on a farm, Tony and Herta Peju bought thirty acres of vines in the famed Rutherford district of the Napa Valley. Since then, the Peju family has maintained a meticulous focus on the land, fostering sustainable and environmental consciousness across their five estates. Still family-owned and operated with daughters Lisa and Ariana poised to take the helm, Peju Winery has become an integral piece of the Napa Valley landscape.
A sizable percentage of Merlot is blended in here, as well as much smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Zinfandel and Malbec. Together, they work, offering a lushness of blackberry jam and chocolate in a medium-bodied package that's smooth, with just the slightest tension of tannin and tobacco.
A refined wine with currant and berry character plus hints of lavender. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Very pretty. Drink or hold.
