"The Beautiful" 2012

K Vintners

Feminine, deep and compelling. First off a beautiful fragrance of black plum, exotic spice, toasted brioche. Luxurious and sexy with a palate anchored with crushed rock, wet earth and garrigue. Always beautiful.

Reviews

  • "94-97 points. Aptly named, the 2012 Syrah The Beautiful is 97% Syrah and 3% co-fermented Viognier that was fermented with 100% whole cluster and aged mostly in neutral larger barrels. Getting a few expletives in the notes, it offers gorgeous aromas and flavors of kirsch liqueur, red licorice, crushed flowers and crushed rock-like minerality to go with a full-bodied, seamless and textured profile on the palate that’s hard to resist. Give it a handful of years once released, and enjoy it over the following decade." (Wine Advocate)
