Peirano Estate 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark fruit and coffee in the nose. We are not toying with gentle aromas here. She is definitely just waking up and could use a couple year nap. Cooking spices on the mid-palate with a curt and sharp finish.

Winemaker’s Notes: “The rich, dark color of this wine catches you from the first pour. It exhibits a rich deep burgundy hue with perfect clarity. The aromas are a compendium of dark fruit – blackberry, black raspberry, and currant – with elements of toasty oak, chocolate, dark roasted coffee bean, sage and spices. A sip fills the mouth with blackberry pie, with hints of rich, ripe black cherries, sweet oak and white pepper, while maintaining absolute dryness and firm, yet supple, tannins. This delicious Cabernet is ready to drink now and will continue to age gracefully for the next 6 to 8 years.”
