Perinet is crafted under the direction of and imported by the owners of the renowned Alpha Omega Winery in Napa Valley. There is a sense of opulence and plush, ripe purity combined with a refined texture that makes this wine outstanding.

The 2016 Perinet 'Merit' Priorat is a succulent and rich blend of 35% Merlot, 30% Syrah, 19% Grenache, and 16% Carignan grown on the famous 'licorella' black slate soils that make Priorat's high altitude vineyards so unique. Long, warm sunny days make for gorgeously expressive fruit and then cooler nights keep the wine fresh and balanced. Loaded with fresh red berries and smoky minerals, this wine is sensational. 

Perinet Description

Blend: 35% Merlot, 30% Syrah, 19% Garnatxa, 16% Carinyena

Wine and Spirits Magazine: 93 Points

Glove-leather soft, this is two-thirds merlot and syrah, one-third garnatxa and cariñena, from estate vines planted in 2002. The wine is long on red fruit and deep mineral spice, completely saturated without any sense of heat. The fresh currant flavors carry notes of turmeric and cumin, earthy, brisk and finely knit. For roast lamb, currant jelly on the side.

Broad berry and plum aromas are schisty in accordance with Priorat norms. This blend of Garnacha, Carignan, Merlot and Syrah is bold and a touch fiery on the palate. Loud berry and plum flavors finish with steady power and complexity.

Jeb Dunnuck: 91 Points

Coming from the cooler, northern end of the Priorat, the 2016 Merit is a beautiful, age worthy wine based on a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache and Carignan. With lots of blueberry, liquid violet, and new leather notes as well as ample rocky minerality, it’s medium to full-bodied, balanced, and has a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming decade or so.
