California: Sonoma County: Dry Creek Valley
What more can we say - Jamie Peterson has done it again!
Today’s Peterson Winery 2011 Dry Creek Valley Vignobles Red Blend is a beautifully delicious wine that took our tasting panel by storm. We always know we’re in for a treat when we open a Peterson Wine, and today’s offering most certainly did not disappoint! Today’s wine is deeply layered, with a rich complexity that begs you to take it slow with this gem. The more time you spend with today’s wine, the more you’ll discover.
Please enjoy our deepest recommendation on Peterson’s latest delicious offering.
Deep sanguine hued in the glass, with flecks of inky, dark magenta.
Beautifully aromatic, with ripe dark berries and juicy blueberry laid overtop soft Provençal herbs, toasty oak, vanilla bean, white peppercorn, tobacco leaf, and dried fallen leaves.
A little bit of Southern France dropped in the Dry Creek Valley, with complex notes of fruit, earth, and spice. A clear note of gravelly minerals is also present, adding another flavor dynamic to today’s wine.
Incredibly soft and oh-so delectable, we guarantee you’ll love this wine. The lingering finish has fine tannins and robust structure, with a slight note of dried cherry that lingers on the tip of the tongue.
Pork chops, prepared with a dry rub of paprika, chili powder, and garlic, then grilled to perfection.
