Broc Cellars Gamay Umpqua Valley 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Own rooted The problem child of the year, stuck ferment, bit of va Licorice, herb stem, and earthy aromas wrap around a bit of funk on this high toned nose which shows significant VA. Off dry, this is rather fruity and simple with firm little tannins that contribute to a slightly dusty feel in the mouth. Short on the finish with some floral notes, this has some attractive attributes but doesn’t quite come together. 82pts

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
