Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored wine opens with a spicy black cherry like bouquet with hints of vanilla and some earth. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is soft, smooth, and elegant with spicy ripe black cherry and vanilla flavors. The finish is dry and it managed tannins are tingly and they linger nicely. The panel felt this wine was very food friendly and would pair nicely with filet mignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This second vintage of Bob Pepi’s first Eponymous wine from outside Napa Valley immediately pleases with complex aromas hinting of cassis, spicy oak notes, slight camphor and raspberries. Held to the light, one sees a rich, purple-scarlet color that hints at the broad palette these grapes afford the winemaker. It has excellent body and structure, with the fruit flavors coming through, especially at this young stage of the wines development. There area also added nuances of chocolate and rhubarb. This wine’s elegance and refinement are reminiscent of the finest Bordeaux blends – from the lush entry through the mid-palate and on to a long, pleasing finish.
