Friday, October 2 Wine Tasting

Autumnal season brings new vintages

Hard to believe today is October 2nd… it was most certainly a quick summer. But here at Pettyjohn’s, we are excited to welcome the official arrival of fall. Autumn means the holiday season is just around the corner and new and exciting products present themselves in mass quantity. October is the time we start mapping out our floor displays for November and mentally putting the year’s best wines in food-pairing displays to make the next few months easy, smooth, and delicious for everyone. Stop by every Friday between 5-7 and watch our store change like the leaves on the trees. This Friday, we are popping open some store favorites that have moved into new vintages. We loved them before but it’s amazing to see how these wines have gotten even better! See you all tonight!

Marietta has played around with this wine over the years, but it still remains predominantly Zinfandel. The current vintage has received incredible press, scoring 90+ points from nearly every reviewer. Ripe, juicy fruit and a lush mouth feel are the hallmarks of Old Vine Red, with peppery spice and dusty earth adding an extra level of richness. Moderate but focused tannins ensure this blend will stand up to almost any food.
