From the Cellar

Peirano Estate Vineyard 2011 "Six Clones" Merlot (California)

04 Jun 2015

(March 9, 2015) ... On my first foray out on the streets of Philadelphia (cue the Springsteen music) I found the wine store with barely a hiccup and I easily dropped $80 on a basket of wines I could not get on my side of the 49th (parallel) ... The first one I tried was by Peirano Estate, part of their Heritage Collection, from California. This Merlot was pretty much what I would expect from a Cali-Merlot: lots of soft, silky fruit on a smooth palate. Aromas spoke of chocolate and sweet plum with a touch of blueberry; palate was that silky smooth plum, cherry and blueberry fruit. A pretty good first night wine, nothing too taxing, but tomorrow I'm expecting better.
