Peju Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Rich and complex, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely aromas of summer berries with hints of anise, cocoa powder and caramel on the nose. Concentrated flavors of mocha, cherry, ripe raspberry and nutmeg lead to a rounded finish with restrained, yet velvety tannins.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Syrah, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec
Blended with Petit Verdot, Malbec and a dab of Zinfandel, this wine is thick and concentrated in red fruit and firm generous tannin. Heavy in texture and weight, it should appeal to fans of a hearty style: it's well made, with dashes of leather and dried herb.
A bright, forward style, delivering a fun blast of cherry and raspberry compote flavors lined with hints of red licorice and fruitcake. This has a juicy and open feel through the finish, where the fruit dominates easily. Drink now through 2020.
