Pennywise – A Winery in Napa that’s Rockin

By Angela L.

Last fall I came across one of the best red’s I ever tasted. I had the Pennywise Petite Sirah, and it was bold and built like the way a Petite Sirah should be. To my curiosity, I wanted to find out about more wines from this label. I asked my local wine store Liquor City  to let me know when their Petite Sirah and other wines from Pennywise came in.

This week they came in…finally, I bought the Pennywise Cabernet Sauvignon and the Pinot Noir. Since it’s summer I cracked open the Pinot Noir. Wow, was I amazed to have tasted such a vibrant, yummy, jammy wine!

As soon as the cork comes out, there’s a hint of Root Beer. I let the wine breathe for about an hour and I could smell the hints of strawberries and cherries. This vibrant wine had tastes of cherries, plums, and strawberries right off the bat. You let it sit on your tongue and small traces of anise and some sandalwood com out.

A great summer red wine that needs to breath for about 30 – 50 minutes to taste all of it’s luscious jammy flavors. I would recommend this with a light pasta vodka creme fish dish or a pork dish of any kind. Check out their wines, the Petite Sirah and Pinot Noir are wonderful.  My suggestion, is pick up a few bottles for your collection, my advice these wines will get better with age.

**Spoiler alert: Next Blog posting from me will be on the Pennywise Cabernet Sauvignon.

    I remember having the Pennywise Pinot a year ago; found it at Trader Joes for about $9 and was very impressed. You can’t find too many good Pinots for under $20. If you happen to see it on the shelf, try the Garnet Carneros Pinot. It’s $19 and super tasty.
