Peju, Merlot, 2007

Peju is a boutique winery along Santa Helena Highway in Napa, CA. This 2007 Merlot has recently been released and it packs some massive tannins, thanks to its relatively high dose of petit verdot (13%, versus 84% merlot and 3% cabernet sauvignon). Nonetheless it's a pleasant, strong wine to be had with flavorful meats and cheeses. Definitely good, albeit on the high end of the price range for its class, $35 at the winery.
