The 2012 Proprietary Red Ancient Vines Bedrock Vineyard is a blend of 22% Mourvèdre, 39% Carignane and 39% Zinfandel from vines planted in 1888! Thank God sites like this still exist and have not been uprooted! The color is a dark plum/ruby and the nose offers plenty of raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with earth, spice and candied strawberries. This spicy, rich, medium to full-bodied, luscious, sexy red should drink well for several years. It certainly proves ancient immigrants knew what they were doing when they planted this vineyard.

Another Dry Creek offering, the 2012 Zinfandel Florence Vineyard exhibits vivid black cherry and strawberry fruit notes intertwined with notions of Provençal lavender and spice. With a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, a luscious, pure style, plenty of complexity and elegance, and a Pinot Noir-like sensitivity, it should drink well for 3-4 years.

The 2012 Proprietary Red The Comet is a blend of 67% Zinfandel, 25% Petite Sirah and 8% Carignane that achieved 14.1% natural alcohol. It offers abundant briary, berry fruit intermixed with earth, pepper and spice, a Mediterranean-styled personality, medium to full body, and excellent purity, texture and length. It will offer easy, pleasurable drinking over the next 3-4 years.
