2012 MOONGATE WINS SILVER AT THE CENTRAL COAST WINE COMPETITION AND 89 POINTS FROM THE WINE ENTHUSIAST

One of our favorites ever, this Primitivo, Syrah and Cabernet Franc blend did well with much competition at our Central Coast Wine Competition, as well as getting 89 points from the Wine Enthusiast!

"This blend of 75% Primitivo, 13% Syrah and 12% Cabernet Franc is starting to show its age, offering rustic dried red-cherry, dust and leather flavors. There are hints of clove and cinnamon decorating the candied red fruit of the palate, but it's time to drink up on this bottling."

We are not sure about the drink up on this bottling as we think it will age for at least another 5 years.  In our library, we have a 2008 that is drinking velvety smooth with much fruit still remaining on the nose and palate.  We believe this is very drinkable now with years still to develop and mature.  Drink now or lay down - either way, you will enjoy!
