In 1879, with only fifty dollars in his pocket, Giacomo Peirano, a grape farmer from Genoa, Italy, immigrated to San Francisco, CA. Along with his smitten bride, Giacomo brought with him Italian Zinfandel vine cuttings from his family’s vineyard. Upon his return to Lodi, he purchased 300 acres of land. He proceeded to propagate and then plant the Zinfandel vines, creating one of the first vineyards in Lodi. In 1992, Lance Randolph, the fourth generation of Peirano to farm the 300 acre estate, began making Peirano wine simply for himself and to prove Lodi could produce desirable wines.
Peirano Estate The Other Red Wine 2009
Making a truly wonderful wine begins with only the best estate grown fruit from the heart of the Lodi Appellation. One is immediately struck by the vibrant color of this wine. The aromas of blackberries and plums are complemented by spice, toasty oak and cedar notes. Upon washing this liquid across the palate, a wave of sweet black cherries and boysenberries, with a hint of smoky, dark oak lead to a long, totally seductive, finish.
This blend consists of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Syrah. They found this blend to be the best expression of our little corner of the Lodi Appellation. A great expression of this variety, this wine will gently knock your socks off. ‘The Other’ is a perfect accompaniment to a variety of cuisine.
