2012 Primitivo, Osborn
Alexander Valley
Tasting Notes: Spice notes layer throughout the inviting nose, weaving through the ripe plum, oak and supple leather. The creamy mouthfeel showcases black raspberry, dark cherry and plum mixed with cedar and chocolate. Spice box and a hint of bright citrus reveal themselves as the finish lingers. This luscious wine will pair perfectly with smoked brisket, dry-rubbed pork tenderloin served with a Zinfandel cherry sauce, or a sausage, red onion and wild mushroom pizza.

2011 Ferrari-Carano Trésor
A blend of the classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Vibrant aromas and flavors of fresh boysenberry, cedar, baking spices vanilla, and toasted oak combine with a full, rich mid-palate with considerable, round tannins. This wine’s upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15—20 years.

Petite Sirah
his wine is offering huge amounts of varietal identity including blackberry, boysenberry and lavender. The aromatics also include sweet flowers and vanilla, mocha, dark chocolate, bay spice and vanilla. The wine is virtually massive in its richness, intense delicious fruits and briars in the palate that impress from the start to the very long finish that goes on for minutes. This is looking to be a spectacular wine and likely the “pick of the litter” of Cast Estate’s wines from 2012 for those who appreciate this delicious varietal.

Old Vine Zinfandel
The Watson Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel is presently showing an intensity and power demonstrating a beautiful concentration of fruit, including deep black cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas together with a floral scent of white flowers and a spicy note of black pepper and bay, with hints of dark chocolate. There are also slight hints of gingerbread and toffee. All of this richness carries through in the mouth with obvious black cherry spice at entry, carrying into a luscious mouth feel and long rich finish of spice and mocha
