This wine came together undisrupted and on its own terms. The 2012 Ox is a supple, seamless wine that reveals power, tenderness, and complexity. Bold cherry, boysenberry, and wild blackberry flavors complement abundant spice. Exotic aromas of vanilla, clove, allspice, mocha, dark chocolate and a smoky note of a distant cedar campfire unfold in the glass. The Ox was aged in 100% French Oak for over three years to allow the big Petite Sirah tannins to soften. Vibrant, concentrated fruit and silky tannins guarantee this wine will be delicious for well over a decade.
