Fifty/Fifty

9 Aug

Drinking Peju Winery’s wonderful “Fifty/Fifty” Merlot-Cab Sauv blend proves how complementary these two grapes can be.   This wine pairs the elegance and lush tannins of merlot with the powerful gripping tannins of a cab, and in effect fills the palate gaps left by each variety. 

While I am certainly enjoying this wine, the price at $85 is a bit steep.   There are other, cheaper blends out there that are similar and much easier on the wallet (for example, Hogue Cellars 2007 Red Table Wine: 88 pts Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast)

As soon as I can justify it (maybe a visit from one of my sons?) I’ll open that 94 rated Peju Cabernet!
