Ochota greenroom

"The Green Room" 2012

Ochota Barrels

Sage, rosemary and thyme infused with cranberry and orange peel outline the perfect growing conditions in 2012. The succulent and layered spiced plum ground swell is built upon by the subtle infusion of garrigue and rose petals. The palate entry is opulent yet nervy with medium bodied savory (almost Pinot like) finely grained textural components resembling cherry skin and wild berries.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Vivid red. Bright, highly perfumed aromas of red berries and Asian spices, with a peppery topnote. Tangy and precise black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good energy and back-end lift. Clean, focused and nervy on the finish, which features fine-grained tannins and a hint of medicinal cherry." (International Wine Cellar)
