About Piccolo 2012 Red Blend, Peju Province, Napa Valley

Peju started back in 1982 with a 30 acre purchase by Tony Peju right in the heart of Napa's Rutherford district. With neighbors like BV, Robert Mondavi and Inglenook, grapes from these vineyards sold well for many years until Peju decided to make his own wine. The rest is history as they say, as Peju has been turning out world class Napa reds for many years now and this 2012 is a beauty. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the grapes are sourced entirely from the Persephone Vineyard, Peju's estate in the heart of Pope Valley, a largely undiscovered grape-growing region in the northeast corner of Napa Valley. The ranch is planted with 130 acres of vines, which includes these Bordeaux grape varieties. At nearly 1,000 feet elevation, the area is characterized by wide temperature swings and little fog, which allows for a consistent growing season and produces fruit with rich, focused flavor, and a precise sense of place. Persephone is sustainably farmed, moving towards organic certification. The wine aged 20 months in 60% French oak and 40% American oak, 40% new. A vibrant and lively wine expressing aromas of cherry, mocha and spice. On the palate silky tannins immerse the taste buds showcasing flavors of ripe blueberry, raspberry jam and tobacco. Smooth and round at the finish, this wine culminates with a hint of leather. The 2012 Piccolo's bright acidity makes it a gorgeous food wine, an awesome Napa estate red at a great price!
