Peirano Estate Vineyards Merlot: #Wine

This Peirano Estate Vineyards Six Clones Merlot just seemed to jump off the shelf into my wine basket. Primarily because of a conversation I had with my friend and wine buyer at CostPlus. The fact that it’s just a few miles south of where I live, helped with that too. I pass it all...
