Friday, Sept 11 Tasting

We hope everyone had an amazing Labor Day weekend and an even better shortened workweek! For most of us here at Pettyjohn’s the idea of fall weather and football has overwhelmed our minds. Excitement for the Broncos season opener down at Sports Authority Field against the Ravens this Sunday has only made us wish the week could be even shorter. In honor of what we hope to be another successful season for our Broncos, we picked a foursome of wines that are superior choices for food off the grill, Sunday morning mimosas, and all tailgate activities. Stop by from 5-7 tonight and sample some crisp bubbles, a beautiful boxed white, and two hearty reds that are the perfect companion to watching some pigskin. Can’t wait to see you all tonight!
Ruffino Prosecco- Reg. 12.99 SALE $11.99
Get the Sunday fun-day started off on the right foot with this crisp, aromatic, and dry Prosecco! This bubbler is awesome to sip on its own, but it is also ideal for those game-day mimosas! Fruity and fragrant with clean notes of citrus, pears, and apples along with slight hints of hawthorn, wisteria and elder. Fine bubbles caress the palate, while intense flavors of apples and peaches give the wine a truly refreshing finish.

Big House California Boxed White- Reg. $20.99

Big House White Box Pettyjohns
Big House White is the perfect box wine to start the season off right! An ideal wine for a sunny Sunday with a nose that carries the vibrancy of spring and white flowers and lychee fruit that surround the senses. The palate opens up to tropical fruits, dried apricot, and white peaches. This wine finishes strong with a cleansing citrus zest that lingers.

Peirano Estates “Six Clones” Lodi Merlot- Reg. $14.79 SALE $9.99
Peirano Estates Six Clones Merlot
Aromas of black cherries, red ripe raspberries, strawberry and spice (white pepper) join together in a single sensation of olfactory bliss. The mouth is filled with an array of flavors, including black cherry, strawberry, and raspberry with lingering hints of cocoa and toasted oak. Moderate tannins and good acidity leave a pleasing, long lasting finish. Each juicy sip is more comforting than the last always leaving the palate wanting more.
Periano Estates Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon- Reg. $14.79 SALE $9.99
Periano Estates Lodi Cabernet 
The rich, dark color of this wine catches you from the first pour. It exhibits a rich deep burgundy hue with perfect clarity. The aromas are a compendium of zesty black cherries, cola, and toasty cocoa. The first initial sip fills the mouth with sweet anise, black boysenberry, cherry, anise, molasses, and baked blackberry pie, while maintaining absolute dryness and firm, round, yet supple tannins. This delicious rich, full, mouth-filling Cabernet is ready to drink now and will continue to age gracefully for the next 6 to 8 years.
