Peju – The Old Victorian 2015 – Napa Valley

The nose is relatively aromatic, structured and offers a very slight concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and small notes of raspberry associated with slight touches of black pepper, small wild berries, discreet hints of spices as well as an imperceptible hint of racy minerality and flowers. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers gourmandise, suavity as well as an acid frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy strawberry, fleshy / juicy redcurrants and small notes of cassis associated with small / slight touches of blackberry, small wild berries as well as discreet hints of spices, gray pepper and an imperceptible touch of pepper (in the background). Tannins are slightly dry. There are a very discreet hint of cocoa and a discreet hint of vanilla on the aftertaste.
