2012 Vintage Grand Reserve Durif
The 2012 Vintage Grand Reserve Durif is one awe inspiring wine and sets a new precedent for this variety. A very dark red with inky purple hues coats the glass but is not impenetrable. Ripe Blueberries and dark forest fruits are all propped up by hints of sweet American APJ oak and a dusting of spice. The palate is extremely full and rich with sweet ripe fruit, firm chalky tannins and a very long finish. With careful cellaring will live well into the next decade.
