91 Points for 2012 East Bench

May 6, 2014 10:27 AM


The 2012 East Bench has earned 91 points and a great review by Stephen Tanzer's Winophilia

"From an outstanding vintage, the 2012 Zinfandel East Bench Dry Creek Valley displays powerful aromas of blackberry, cherry compote, vanilla and woodsmoke, with a spicy overtone that adds urgency. Fleshy, spicy and smooth, it shows very good clarity to its strong bitter cherry and dark berry flavors. Youthfully firm tannins give shape to the persistent finish, which features a subtle licorice note."
