2012 Proulx Jack Barrett 750ml

2012 Proulx Jack Barrett

image may not be actual bottle available

This artful blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Malbec, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot is very dark and brooding when first poured. It opens quickly in the glass to reveal beautiful blueberry and violet aromas along with hints of crushed rocks and incense. Rich, full-bodied, powerful, and tannic, it should be at its finest between 2016-2025. Please buy this rockstar by the case.

Varietal: Blend

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: California
California is one of the most diverse wine producing regions of the world. Although it has a history spanning over 200 years, it has experienced most of its growth in the last fifty years. The regions of Napa Valley and Sonoma County have become as renowned as France’s Bordeaux and Burgundy. While Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay are by far the most popular fine wine varieties, producers in the Golden State have also experimented with an unparalleled array of diverse varieties, including Zinfandel, Syrah, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, and Tempranillo.

Sub-Region: Central Coast
The Central Coast is the largest AVA and includes the famous appellations of Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria Valleys.

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
