Highway 12 Winery
2012 Bordeaux Blend
Red Blend •Serres Ranch
California: Sonoma County
We love our red blends, with Agent Red in particular being a big fan of well made blends. Today’s Highway 12 Winery 2012 Bordeaux Blend was right up his alley, presenting a fantastic blend of juicy fruit and excellent structure.
Today’s wine is budget friendly, coming in at under $20, but it’s certainly not of budget quality. Only the best fruit went into today’s blend, with fruit 100% sourced from the Serres Ranch Vineyard. This shines through particularly on the finish, where a silken texture and plump tannins clearly show you’re sipping a wine of quality.
Please enjoy our fullest recommendation for today’s delicious, food friendly blend!
An inky dark red, almost midnight, at its heart.
A very aromatic nose on this wine, with fresh hints of red and dark fruit leaping up to greet you. Once you’ve waded past the wild strawberry, black currant, and mulberry, you’ll brush against aromas of leather, tobacco leaf, lightly roasted coffee bean, and dried herbs.
Beautifully understated, today’s blend is right up a Cab lover’s alley. Juicy, concentrated notes of dark fruit are paired with toasty dark spices, baker’s chocolate, espresso bean, sweet tobacco leaf, and touches of sage and rosemary.
An incredibly smooth finish, beautifully structured with plump, healthy tannins.
Grilled pork spare ribs, finished with a zippy cherry cola glaze (believe us, YUM!).
