    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Another magnificent offering is the 2012 Syrah La Herradura, which comes from a Conn Valley hillside vineyard. This spectacular Syrah displays notes of burning embers, charcoal, pepper, charcuterie, tapenade and copious quantities of blackberries and chocolate. Full-bodied and opulent, this head-turning beauty should drink well for a decade. Drink: 2013 - 2023.

    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    From the hillsides of Conn Valley, the 2012 Syrah La Herradura exhibits lots of lavender, blackberry, roasted meat and bouquet garni characteristics. Full-bodied, rich, earthy, peppery and spicy, it should drink well for 7-8 years.

    Winery Notes

    It is funny, but “classic” and “perfect” are words bantered about a lot regarding this bountiful, beautiful vintage. To me it was “classic” growing conditions - early bud break, no frost damage, relatively dry spring, with less than an inch in April, then nothing till October, and less than an inch that final month of harvest. One heat spike in June, another in early October, but just beau- tiful otherwise, with very cool evenings and warm, idyllic days. It was a great year to be a farmer. A vintner had to beware, for after two very short crops in 2010 and 2011 - 2012 set a big crop that had to be thinned many times. By paying very close attention to the crop in each block, I can use the word, “perfect”. Man had to interfere to bring things into balance for what will easily be termed a great vintage.
