Broc Cellars Carignan Alexander Valley 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Carbonic maceration, organic farming, native yeasts. Spicy on the nose and high-toned if graced with nuanced meaty, smoky, black olive and leathery aromas. Bright on entry and quite acid driven in the mouth, this is packed with juicy red fruit, all cranberry and wild cherry. There’s a nice touch of minerality to the palate and a hint of pomegranate on the backend that leads to a moderately long, acid driven and very zesty finish. A chillable red that would make for a fabulous picnic wine, and an intriguing red option for serving with fish. 86pts

Micro-production urban winery located in the Bay Area producing Grenache, Zinfandel, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Pinot Noir. Broc Cellars was nothing more than an idea not that long ago, formed by Chris Brockway, about making wines that were “site specific”. Where the wines true character came from using only sustainably, organically, or biodynamically grown grapes from areas that most would consider marginal climates. Believing that vineyards develop ‘true’ character and complexity when they have to struggle to survive. This can come from many different aspects: poor nutrient and water holding capacity, steep slopes, cool temperatures, or from old vines that are dry farmed. Read less
