Winemaker Notes:

The love of farming and a passion for wine brought Tony Peju to the Napa Valley. A series of ideas starting in his birthplace on the Caspian Sea, then France, England and eventually, Los Angeles created the Peju’s Napa Valley winery. In 1982, Tony and his wife Herta purchased 30 acres of land in the Napa Valley with the magic ingredient - location. Neighboring vineyards in Rutherford included Robert Mondavi, Inglenook and Beaulieu. Situated between Highway 29 and the Napa River, the acreage included a 1900-era house and rambling vineyards, some 60 or more years old. Looking to the future, Tony and Herta have introduced their two daughters, Lisa and Ariana, to the workings of the wine business. Both of the young women are immersing themselves in all aspects of Peju Winery.

Tasting Notes:

This classic Cabernet Franc offers aromas of raspberry, green peppercorn and violets. Layers of savory dried herbs, clove, plum and blackberry , finishing with hints of cedar and rosemary. This supple, elegant wine is brilliant now and will continue to mature for the next 5- 7 years.
