2014 Sentinal Oak
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc
A bright and savory wine, it charms the senses with aromas of cherry tart, At first inhale, bright red cherry and cranberry fruit, intertwined with veins of dark blackberry and black cherry arise. After a few minutes of breathing, this Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend opens up, entrancing with hints of maple syrup, hazelnut and butterscotch. True to its blend, the palate mimics its mixed berry nose with layers of boysenberry, currant, tart raspberry and sweet tobacco, finishing with a spice of savory herbs. Sensational now, this wine will continue to mature for the next decade.
Inspiration: In honor of our rich heritage, we present the Nostalgia Series, a line of Peju club exclusive wines. Spearheaded by Herta Peju, each label showcases a beloved photo of our property over the ages. Sentinel Oak pays homage to the old oak trees found on our Persephone Estates. Oak trees are frequently cut down by vineyard owners since their expansive shade can be deadly to vines. Our family could not bear to chop down such long-standing beings, thus The Sentinel Oak represents our dedication to the beautiful diversity of ecosystem found on our vineyards.
