Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
“Aromas of black cherries, red ripe raspberries, strawberry and spice (white pepper), join together in a single sensation of olfactory bliss. The mouth is filled with an array of flavors, including black cherry, strawberry and raspberry with lingering hints of cocoa and toasted oak. Moderate tannins and good acidity leave a pleasing, long lasting finish. Each juicy sip is more comforting than the last always leaving the palate to want more.”

Chardonnay Peirano
Double Gold for 2017 Chardonnay
This estate grown Chardonnay was hand-picked using a dual harvest technique. Half of the grapes are harvested in mid to late August, when the fruit still has firm acids. The other half is picked from 3-4 weeks later, when the grapes are bursting with sugars. Very enjoyable and easy to drink!

Price: $16 a bottle
Regular Case Price: $140
Special Tasting Room Case Price Through January 31, 2019: $84 case
An amazing bargain at only $7 a bottle!

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
The vibrant color of this wine immediately catches your attention. The aromas of fresh picked white peaches, ripe melon, and yellow apples instantly fill your senses and are complemented by hints of light vanilla that entices that first sip. The mouth fills with complex flavors of sweet, rich, red and yellow apples, bosch pears, fresh picked peaches and juicy sweet honeydew melons, leaving you breathless. Soft hints of butter and vanilla round out the wine to produce a very seductive, lingering finish.

Peirano Cabernet Sauvignon

Silver for 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon comes from 50-year-old Lodi vines. The grapes were hand-picked. You can’t help but enjoy the intense fruit flavors of this Cab!

Price: $16 a bottle
Regular Case Price: $140
Special Tasting Room Case Price Through January 31, 2019: $84 case
An amazing bargain at only $7 a bottle!

Winemaker’s Tasting 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 zesty black cherries, cola, and toasty cocoa. The first initial sip fills the mouth with sweet anise, black boysenberry, cherry, anise, molasses, and baked blackberry pie, while maintaining absolute dryness and firm, round, yet supple, tannins. This delicious rich, full, mouth filling Cabernet is ready to drink now and will continue to age gracefully for the next 6 to 8 years.”

Peirano Old Vine Zinfandel
Bronze for 2015Old Vine Zinfandel
This old estate grown Zinfandel was grown on vines more than 120 years old. The result? A deliciously intense fruit forward wine!

Another amazing bargain at only $7 a bottle!

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
The initial whiff of this seductive wine produces aromas of bright red cherries, ripe strawberries, spice and toast. On the palate, you swirl this rich dark wine around in your mouth and the initial sensation is that of luscious, juicy, freshly-picked ripe strawberries. The second sip explodes with sweet black cherries and strawberry jam, with moderate tannins and juicy acidity. This rich, mouthfilling Old Vine Zinfandel will pair with ALL foods, from that gourmet burger on the grill, to a nut-crusted seared rare Ahi.
