2011 was off the charts. 2012 is forgettable. When I first tasted the 2011 vintage with its superb blend of fruitiness and earthy mourvedre, it immediately became one of my favorites. What a difference a year makes. The 2012 version is sharp, aggressive and unpalatable.

Good bright, dark red. Aromas of cherry liqueur, blueberry, wild herbs and tree bark. Juicy, spicy red fruit and menthol flavors are accented by cool herbal notes. Boasts good intensity but could use more flesh and pliancy; seems a bit pinched today. This fresh blend finishes with firm tannins and moderate persistence.

Lively floral flavours with almond and yellow applenotes. Elegantly textured with great length. Judicious oak aging delivers depth and richness. Mouthwatering palate with a lingering finish.

The 2012 Wolftrap red, a Rhone Ranger blend of 67% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre and 2% Viognier, plays it closer to the vest. It is a medium-bodied, serviceable, bistro-styled red offering notes of spice, pepper, cherries and herbs in a medium-bodied, pretty style. Drink it over the next several years.

The 2012 Wolftrap Red is a blend of 67% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre and 2% Viognier matured with oak staves. It has a simple but clean fresh bouquet with dark cherries and briery fruit. The palate is ripe and rounded on the entry with plump tannins and a svelte, commercially savvy finish. As usual, this is great value. Drink now–2015.


Winemaker's Notes:

Rich aromatic flavours of almonds, apple blossom and spice. Medium bodied and generously textured with judicious use of oak. Well balanced natural acidity with a lengthy mouthwatering finish.
