THE WINE

“The PerUs vision is nothing less than to produce special, truly singular wines with no compromise; to bring to life a family of wines that speak to the excellence that is Napa Valley. I am honored to craft the first vintage of PerUs wines.”

- russell bevan, winemaker

“Russell Bevan is one of the more outspoken producers in Napa Valley, and so are his wines. These sumptuous, beautifully textured reds are full of personality. Made to be accessible right upon release, the Bevan wines are rich, intense and hugely delicious.”

- robert parker, the wine advocate

 

Alessio 2017

 

Bordeaux Style Blend

This is a gentleman’s wine. Polished, refined and sophisticated, it never disappoints. The Cabernet Franc, which makes up 42% of the blend comes from Sugarloaf Mountain and brings with it an amazing ripe tobacco leaf aromatic that gives way to a floral quality that captivates and charms you. The Franc also has a mid-palate power that ensures that this wine will rest in the cellar for many years and still be youthful. The Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine was aged in 100% Sylvain Grand Reserve barrels which help manage the wine’s tannins, giving them a round refined quality. The combination of the two varietals is spectacular; this wine is a true show stopper.

Janeen 2017

 

Cabernet Sauvignon

Much like her sibling the Bryn, this wine finds her harmony in the combination of two different components. Here we showcase the mountain fruit from the Sage Ridge vineyard whose 1200 foot elevation gives it an extra level of intensity. The Tench portion of the wine brings a velvety quality that helps tame the mountain fruit’s structure. Fine grain tannins, a long finish that show cases beautiful red fruit flavors reveals the wine’s feminine side, but there is no mistaking that this wine is all about Cabernet Sauvignon and it’s amazing purity fruit.

Bryn 2017

 

Proprietary Blend

This is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. The goal when crafting this wine was to showcase the amazing harmony that these two varietals highlight in each other. The Cabernet Sauvignon with all of its power and purity of fruits is enhanced by the Merlot’s amazing mid-palate and richness. The Merlot with all of its chocolatey goodness benefits from the Cabernets black berry and blueberry flavors. The resulting wine is a combination of power and seductiveness.

Armaan 2017

 

Cabernet Sauvignon

The big boy. Don’t even think about popping a cork from an Armaan unless you are ready to dance with our 800 pound gorilla. Having tasted this wine 8 times since bottling I am always amazed how so much flavor can be packed into a sip of wine. Chocolate, cherry, plum, blueberry, the fruit flavors attack your palate, then the hints of mocha and chocolate are revealed. We had a couple of barrels that came from late in the pressing process at the end of fermentation that had an extra level of intensity and power that were too special to be blended into another wine so we used them to create the Armaan. They were so singular that they deserved to be bottled by themselves, which unfortunately limited the production amount of this wine, but such is life. Excellence can’t be forced and what we captured in this wine was so special that it had earned the right not to be diluted. Massive and tantalizing, this wine should be shared with people you adore and no one else.

Alessio 2016

 

Bordeaux Style Blend

This flamboyant Bordeaux style blend is a combination of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon once again displays Russell Bevan's genius in blending.

Janeen 2016

 

Proprietary Red

The most refined of the 2016 PerUs wines, this wine displays the purity that can be achieved from high elevation vineyards. Crafted mostly from a vineyard atop Atlas Peak in Napa's Eastern mountain range, this wine dances on the palate with high tones and amazing acidity. The 90% Cabernet Sauvignon is buttressed by 10% Cabernet Franc from Sugar Loaf Mountain resulting in a wine with perfect balance and a finish that begs from another glass.

Armaan 2016

 

Cabernet Sauvignon

This powerhouse Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from the famed Tench Vineyard in the heart of Oakville. This wine displays the depth and intensity for which this site is known. While still the smallest of the PerUs production, this is by far the most robust wine in our family of wines.

Alessio 2015

 

Bordeaux Style Blend

Alessio draws its power from the vines of both our Tench and Sugarloaf Mountain vineyards, a marriage of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc that yields a bold and delicious wine with a hint of rich, mellow chocolate in its intense flavor. This approachable wine will also mature gracefully, revealing new layers of nuance and complexity over time. The wine is named to honor the loss of one of our founders' fathers who left us with the lesson that hard work, and boldness balanced with humility, leads to something wonderful and memorable.

Armaan 2015

 

Cabernet Sauvignon

Armaan is a powerful, fruit-driven wine that expresses with verve and grace the purity of the fruit from which it is born. Rich and intense, Armaan captures the essence of the great Napa Valley reds with its silky texture and robust flavors. With outstanding potential to age well in the cellar, yet retain youthful vigor, this wine represents the concept of perpetuity and the values that our children will carry forward.

Veena 2015

 

Sauvignon Blanc

Pronounced “sunshine in a glass” by winemaker Russell Bevan, Veena is a delightful wine with evocative aromas and a “big push” of tropical, citrus and stone fruit flavors rather than the grassy grapefruit profile typical of Sauvignon Blanc. A crisp, clean acidity pairs beautifully with cheese, fish and other light foods. Truly a singular wine, Veena is a tribute to a woman who brought sunshine into all of our lives and carried through life with a presence both elegant and bold.

Kyla 2014

 

Bordeaux Blend

The 2014 Kyla Bordeaux Blend displays loads of forest floor, spring flowers, blueberry and black raspberry fruit with a hint of mulberry in a dense, opulent, fleshy, pure style. The union of sweet tannins and lushness is a formula sure to please. This wine is crafted with precision in that ripe, concentrated, lavishly endowed, multidimensional style.

Ruby 2013

 

Bordeaux Blend

Sugarloaf Mountain is a special site, farmed meticulously for high quality wine. It is a harmonious relationship between land and respectful guardianship from those who tend it. This new wine reflects the quality and care from the hands that tend our vines. The heart of the PerUs Ruby 2013 Bordeaux Blend is deep and reverent, with ripe fresh fruit at its core, wrapped with sweet tobacco and kissed with cacao. The aromas of summer nectarines and tree ripened bing cherries reach for you in elegant whisps as you swirl this wine in the glass. Beautifully structured with velvety, fully integrated tannins, alongside a bright and vibrant acidity, PerUs Ruby offers the cellar capability for many years while still maintaining a remarkable approachability in its youth.
