Wine Details





Wine Description

(2005 Vintage)

Flavors and aromas of black cherry, cedar, lavender and vanilla. Round and full-bodied, with soft, fine-grained tannins.

95 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate:

"The full-bodied 2005 Perry’s Blend (88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is a combination of estate fruit and purchased grapes.

An ethereal lightness and overall harmony give the wine a Bordeaux-like framework. It possesses terrific purity and depth, and a sweetness to the tannin that suggests it can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years." (Dec. 2008)

    (2002 Vintage) 62% Cabernet Sauvignon; 34% Cabernet Franc; 3% Merlot; 1% Petit Verdot. The preferred sibling of the Juslyn triplets, this one is rich and reasonably fruity with notes of chocolate and creamy oak in support. Full on the palate and a touch dry from tannin, it will round out with a half decade in the bottle or can serve with roasts and steaks in the nearer term.
