Don't forget to tell them about the PDV raffle too!
Thanks for the nudge, Kendra. 5 orders picked at random will receive a free gift - a jar of Piment d' Ville, a sweet, smoky Esplette chili pepper grown right here in the hills outside of Boonville, CA. Berserkers, meet Kendra, she and Nacho grow the chiles.

Carignan was a star from last year. for sure. The 9 Carignan offer was a no brainer.

A hearty big up to those of you who alerted us to this tasting note by the great Drew Goin [worship.gif]

  • 2015 The Princess and the Peasant Carignan - USA, California, North Coast, Mendocino County (1/27/2018)
    My high esteem for The Princess and The Peasant is sustained by bottlings like this.

    Night #1: PnP, the nose was initially reserved, as were the first few sips. Over twenty minutes, dark berries, tinged with bramble and sage, and a tug-of-war between the acidity and tannins promised better things in store. The bottle was re-corked and left on the counter for the evening.

    Night #2: The nose became an explosive mix of dark berries and plum. The palate yielded a fascinating combination of brambly red and black field berries, violets. The wine presented a pleasing medium-length finish. The tannins and acidity, not in any way overwhelming, instead contributed to the structure to a beautiful wine. I kept returning to the glass, picking up faint impressions of strawberries and earth, as well as a Pinot Noir-like sensibility in this old-vine Carignan.

    The Princess and The Peasant's inaugural "Poor Ranch" bottling continues to deliver a balance of fruit and savor - a well-crafted wine for the price, guaranteed to please a broad range of wine drinkers.

Lots of delicate strawberry flavors and enough sophistication to elevate it beyond anything approaching the same price point.

For those perpetually asking for a Pinot Noir under $XX, this is the one!
