Known for great values, McManis has upped the ante with this incredible value comprised mostly of Cabernet and Petite Verdot. We dare you to try and not want a case for your cellar! “Deep, dark, oaky and tannic, this wine opens with powerful aromas of charred barrels and wood smoke. Juicy flavors of blackberry and black cherry follow, with plenty of fine-textured tannins and a lingering finish. It's made from an unusual blend of Petite Verdot and Tannat grapes.” 90pts Wine Enthusiast

Elegant and full-bodied, this Bordeaux blend is rich with notes of dark fruit, mocha, and toasted spices. On the palate, compote of black currants and raspberries intertwine with clove and espresso notes.

2013 Stratton Lummis, Petite Sirah, Napa Valley, California
MSRP $34.99, 2nd Bottle $1.00

A wine perfect for the cooler season, this Petite Sirah is loaded with violet, berries, white pepper, oak and bacon fat. Yes, I said bacon fat! Traditional of many Petite Sirah’s is this rich flavor often comes through on the finish. This big, black wine is dark as they come due to the small and thick-skinned Petite Sirah grape. Enjoy this old-world gem with cheeses, or alongside your favorite prime meat. Only 300 cases produced.

2015 Rive Droit Rive Gauche, Cote du Rhone, France
MSRP $11.99, 2nd Bottle $1.00

This delicious full-bodied Rhone (60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre) is a winner with concentration, spice and impressively fruited. The bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry, clove and toasted hazelnut characteristics, leading to a succulent palate that is beautifully rounded and richly textured. At nearly half price when you apply the Dollar discount, other wines in this price category cannot compete! Buy a case or two for your cellar!

There is no doubt, Thanksgiving Weekend is THE busiest shopping weekend of the year. With the majority of money spent at chain stores, Small Business Saturday was created in efforts to drive sales to small businesses like our own. As a local and family owned retailer, we recognize the importance of shopping small and supporting other small businesses in the community. When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community strengthening the economic base. With so many reasons to #SHOPSMALL, we would love to hear your favorite reason for shopping at Peterson's on our Facebook page or on Google or Yelp!
