Ruby and mostly opaque, the 2012 Uriah checks in as a blend of 48% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers loads of red plum, spice-box, dried flowers and creamy licorice to go with a medium to full-bodied, pure, supple, elegant and nicely structured profile on the palate. The élevage here is 18 months in 55% new French oak, and the oak is beautifully integrated. It has a classical, balanced feel and I suspect it will age beautifully. Drink it anytime over the coming 10-15 years.

Lithe and focused, with an apricot edge to the black currant and spice flavors, coming together against polished tannins as the finish lingers. This has presence and persistence. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2022. 2,250 cases made.

Merlot and Cabernet Franc make up the majority of this wine, along with pinches of Petit Verdot and Malbec. It commands attention with aromas of flowers, herbs, freshly tilled soil, cherry, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. The palate is outrageously textured with a hypnotic mouthfeel and a finish that sails into the distance. Far from a blockbuster style, it’s all about elegance and detail.
