2012 Proprietary Blend

2012 was the first solid year followed by a trio of challenging and difficult years. The blend is equal parts Merlot and Malbec (36%) complimented by a little less Syrah (28%).  The 2012 Blend’s star is the Merlot. This is some of the best Merlot our vineyards have produced in the past decade.  It presents a full palate of bright black currant and ripe red berry.  Dry and floral, the Merlot offers length and bright acids.  Malbec is the youngest block on our property and the 2012 is its coming out party.  Bright, crisp, and vibrant it offers a heady character with good tannin, and presents a juicy palate of dark red fruit, hibiscus and pomegranate.  The Syrah is the backbone of our blend – the workhorse, offering structure and balance.  It presents notes of black cherry and a soft, round, juicy palette.  The three parts combine to build layer upon layer of elegance complimented by tight, grainy tannin and a round finish.  It is complex and layered, but well balanced and exceptionally integrated.  It is inky with a concentration of blackberry, cherry, and dark fruit. This wine, like all of our others will continue to age beautifully for at least a decade.
