A Whole Lotta Perrucci

A magnum of Perrucci 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon signed by winemakers Andy and Greg Perrucci.
Since settling here in California more than a century ago, the Perrucci family has never ventured far from the Santa Clara Valley.  The fertile soils and mild climate are very similar to the Italian countryside they left behind.  With the help and support from four generations of family beside them, brothers Andy and Greg Perrucci ventured into winemaking over ten years ago when they first planted vines on their father’s Los Gatos Estate. The first vintage, although very small was an exciting view of things to come.  Since then, increases in production have not come at the expense of quality.  On the contrary, quality was always the main objective and inferior grapes were often sacrificed to bring a superior product to your table. Together, the brothers’ winemaking techniques are an enviable combination of art and science with one result, great wine.

Testarossa Magnum

Whether it’s a special occasion or just a Saturday night with friends, pour glasses for a crowd with this magnum of 2010 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir from Testarossa Winery.

Wine description from Bill Brosseau, Director of Winemaking: Dark red color. Opens up nicely with some cherry, cranberry, black pepper, and cloves. With further aeration, notes of lemon, orange, and papaya subtly come out into the open. Hints of cherry, black pepper, and cloves sail into the palate and are equally matched by some strawberry flavors. The texture of the wine carries vibrant tannins and bright acidity. This hedonistic Pinot Noir ends nicely with a refreshing, lingering finish. Drink now through 2016.
