2012 Bedrock North Coast Syrah California
91-94 (RP)“The 2012 Syrah North Coast is a multi-appellation blend from five separate vineyards that utilized 40% stems and 15% new French oak. It is a delicious, sexy, up-front Syrah meant for near-term consumption. With impressive levels of blackberry and acacia flower notes intermixed with licorice and charcoal, this wine should drink well for 5-7 years.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
As with the 2012 Old Vine this wine hopefully punches way above its price tag. The 2012 is composed of Weill Vineyard, Hudson Vineyard, a couple barrels of Griffin’s Lair, Rossi Ranch, and even a barrel of the gorgeous 2012 Alder Springs Syrah. All of the vineyards were fermented with 40-80% whole-cluster and the wine saw roughly 15% new French oak. This is like a hybrid of the dense 2009 and the intensely perfumed 2011 with all the beautifully savage aromatics of game, pepper, olive, violets and hart blood and with dense, smoky fruit and structure. Hopefully a great domestic alternative to Gonon or Graillot- the two G’s of greatness.
