Ines 2019

 

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Houyi Vineyard on Pritchard Hill

Where Pritchard Hill is traditionally known for refinement and complexity, this is a combination of intensity and focus. The textures are primal, on the verge of Neanderthal. The beautiful flavor profile is cherry and berry, but then the textures take control and let you know that this is the wine made to live for decades. This is not a shy wine, if you don’t wanna play with our intensity you don’t wanna play with Ines.

Lyla 2019

 

Sugarloaf Mountain Merlot

If you have ever enjoyed 97% dark chocolate, you’re gonna want to back the truck up and order the 2019 Lyla. The initial impact on the palate is almost overwhelming.

Bryn 2019

 

Sugarloaf Mountain Merlot & Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This is the perfect marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with the right intensity of Oakville Cab and the plush bittersweet chocolate naughtiness of Sugarloaf Merlot. Regardless of your mood, if you’re looking for something to build you up or something to call you down, this one brings out the best in all of us. Dark cherry plum raspberry flavor is complemented with chocolate mocha and blue rolling a hint of cocoa.

Janeen 2019

 

Sage Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2019 Janeen is incredibly supple for such a massive wine. The fruit profile starts with raspberries and cherries and as it gains weight it has a beautiful spicy component that closes out the finish. Dark colors exude power and intensity, but the wine has a refined edge that speaks to it’s vineyard perched at 1400 ft elevation.

Alessio 2019

 

Bordeaux Style Blend

The 2019 version of our Alessio is far and away the most gigantic Alessio to date. Incredible weight, it pulses on the palate. This is Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc forming the perfect blend of concentration, power and seductiveness. Dark cocoa and boysenberry gush from the glass and continue to pull you in until the last sip crosses your lips.

Armaan 2019

 

Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Arman is intensity personified. Deep dark hints to this wine’s core personality which is an absolute force of nature. Not for the timid, this is the type of Cabernet that separates the men from the boys. Luxurious textures make it a tad presentable but it’s pure core is raw and primal.

Ines 2018

 

Cabernet Sauvignon from Pritchard Hill

Whereas this wine is named after a baby, and babies are still so pure and innocent, this wine conveys those qualities perfectly. There has never been a Perus Wine that speaks to the purest essence of cabernet sauvignon as this does. A beam of blackberry and blueberry, a mouthfeel of verve and vibrancy this is cabernet's highest level of pure perfection.

Lyla 2018

 

Proprietary Blend

Dark and brooding, this is not a wine to be taken lightly. She wants to sit in the cellar and develop to become the glamour lady she wants to be. Right now she is a mouthful of goth rambunctiousness; Attitude, edge, and a sharp tongue, this is the wine you drink in the dark while reading your favorite book and wanting to be left alone. Perfectly balanced and extremely powerful- this is a wine with decades in her future while maintaining her youthfulness the entire time.

Bryn 2018

 

Proprietary Blend

Stone fruits, flowers and black cherries, all of the things that make a farmer's market perfection for me live in this fine wine. Ethereal lightness with intensity, this wine pushes your imagination one way and then another. Is it Nureyev or is it Bruce Lee? Either way it is a combination of tightly wound power in an incredibly artistic wrapper. It glides with an elegance and grace across the palate.

Janeen 2018

 

Cabernet Sauvignon from Sage Ridge

From a vineyard planted at 1500 ft elevation, meter by meter so the vines are incredibly dense, on a site that is at a 30 degree slope, this wine shows an intensity that comes from its origins. Lively and energetic, the blue and purple fruits compete for your attention. On the palate, the natural acidity screams for something rich and hearty and the tannins coat the palate and give way to a long, lingering finish.

Alessio 2018

 

Bordeaux Style Blend

Immediate aromatics of cocoa and floral leap from the glass. Juicy red fruits equates to a beautiful round texture to match. Polished and refined as Alessio has always been, the 2018 brings an extra level on intensity.

Armaan 2018

 

Cabernet Sauvignon

Oakville represents power and concentration. The Armaan exemplifies the seriousness of Oakville. Massive and extracted, this is a wine that forces you to pay attention. Age worthy but wants to come out and play already. Deep plum, boysenberry and blackberry compete for your attention but rich cocoa and vanilla keep taking over and pulling you away. The tannins and anthocyanins assure a long life, but if you are in the mood for a rollercoaster ride and all you have is a bottle of wine, Armaan wants to play.

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. A nod to the original vintage of PerUs, this wine reveals the continued love affair between Sugar Loaf Mountain's Bordeaux varietals and Tench Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
