Broc Cellars Cuvee 13.1 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Syrah with about 5% Counoise Big natural wine nose is gently funky at first the turning black fruity with stemmy, briary, savory accents and a nice nuanced cracked pepper note. There’s gorgeous fruit here, rich and powerful without weight in the mouth. Attractive polished tannins support lovely peppery base notes and black raspberry and little blueberry emerging with air along with some perfumed floral notes. Long on the finish with an absolutely fabulous blend of fresh crushed black fruit with hints of juniper and earth adding nuance. This is beautifully balanced. 92pts

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
