The 2016 'Janeen' Proprietary Red is a total knockout from PerUs and winemaker Russell Bevan. Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Edcora Vineyard in Atlas Peak, and 10% Cabernet Franc from Sugarloaf Mountain. This instantly begins to impress with its seductive aromatics of ripe blackberries and dark cherries laced with nuances of sweet spices, tobacco, graphite, dried sage, fresh violets and dusty minerals all soaring from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, with beautifully polished tannins that frame the plush core of gorgeous ripe dark fruits. Showing wonderful depth and concentration, this stunning red remains well-poised and balanced, as it goes on to display outstanding purity and freshness through the long, supple finish. While already utterly captivating in its youth, this also possesses the potential to flourish in the cellar for many years to come. Whether approaching this early on, or after extended bottle age, readers will certainly be in for a special treat with this stunning wine from PerUs.
