Live and Let Doug
How lucky are you, today, dear Operative!
Once again, we have managed to get our clever palates on a wine, long before it becomes available to the public at large. We’ve enjoyed our close relationship with Doug Peters these past six years and we are honored that he grants us early access to some of his wines.
Today’s 2009 Peters Family Winery Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrifically delicious wine that our tasting panel was absolutely thrilled with. We all agreed that this wine easily rivals the best that Napa has to offer. We also agreed that we would be stocking our own cellars.
Drinking beautifully now, this very highly recommended wine will only continue to improve over the next few years, so be sure to pick up enough to lay a few bottles down. At better than 40% off, it is hard to resist.
Pair this very food-friendly wine with a gourmet multi-cheese grilled cheese sandwich or a pork loin in a cherry reduction with fresh bing cherries.
Deep maroon hues with a lively, glinting crimson edge. Tall, skinny tears fall swiftly down the glass wall after a hearty swirl.
Dense and dark with lush layers of dark fruit and savory notes. This wine leads with blackberry and black cherry, tobacco, gigar box, black tea, and a hint of chocolate-covered cherry cordial candy. After swirling, traces of brown sugar, toasty oak and celery tops make an intriguing appearance.
Dark and richly layered with blackberry, black cherry, acai berry, pomegranate, dried cranberry and stewed plum. After the wine opens up, flavors of dark dried violets and soft oak emerge.
A very clean finish with bright red fruit that persists longer than other flavors. Gradually drying, this wine shows elegant tannins with dried violets and black tea leaf.
